Internship

Aidspan Internship Programme
Aidspan is an international NGO whose mission is to reinforce the effectiveness of the Global Fund. Aidspan does so by serving as an independent watchdog of the Global Fund and of the implementers of its grants through providing information, analysis and advice; facilitating critical debate; and promoting greater transparency, accountability, effectiveness and impact. Aidspan’s vision is that the Global Fund will raise and disburse adequate money to fight AIDS, TB and malaria worldwide, with the Fund and the implementers of its grants being fully transparent, fully accountable, and achieving the greatest possible impact.
 
Aidspan internships are targeted at undergraduate and post-graduate students who have the requisite skills to be hosted in our Resarch, Outreach, Digital Innovations, and Editorial Departments.
