The PAHO Internship Program - Promoting Future Leaders in Public Health

Young professionals

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) recognizes the importance of a new generation of public health leaders who have a clear understanding of global health issues, the role international organizations play in achieving the  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as addressing critical health needs.

In this regard, the PAHO Internship Program aims to provide a great experience to dedicated and passionate individuals entering the field of public health who are interested in gaining some hands on experience for a maximum of six months in the leading health agency in the Americas.  

PAHO interns are matched both in-person and virtually with appropriate technical or administrative programs based on their area of studies, professional interests, and skills. Placement opportunities are available at PAHO Headquarters in Washington, D.C., PAHO Country Offices in the Americas including the Caribbean, as well as the Pan American Centers in Brazil and Uruguay.
