SIT Study Abroad Kenya: Public Health in the Tropics Internship (Summer)
Explore the complexities of public health promotion and practice in Kenya and the tropics while gaining practical professional experience in public health.
WHY INTERN IN PUBLIC HEALTH IN KENYA?
The Lake Victoria region is a site of infectious diseases such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and neglected tropical diseases. In Kisumu, home to the largest U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) facility outside North America on a joint campus of the Kenya Medical Research Institute, you’ll complete a five-week internship focused on public health. During your time here, you’ll also enjoy two weekend excursions, first, to Maasai Mara National Reserve, home to lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and hippos; and then to Jinja, Uganda, a quiet town on Lake Victoria known as the source of the Nile.
