ICAP provides opportunities for graduate students in public health and related fields to gain experience in international HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment, in New York and/or at our country programs in sub-Saharan Africa.

Supervision and Mentorship

ICAP staff will provide mentorship and supervision to students as they support ICAP activities and complete their projects.  Each student will be paired with an ICAP-New York-based mentor and an in-country mentor, if applicable. These mentors will support the student with orientation, project development, skills coaching, and arrangement of logistics, such as housing and ground transportation. 

For Africa-based interns, in-country teams will serve as a larger support network and aid students on issues related to projects and living in-country.

Evaluations and Reports

Students and mentors will each complete evaluations, and each student will produce a brief report on their experiences.
