We could use your help!
Volunteers and interns are highly valued at the DTHF. If you are interested in spending three months or more at an accredited research institution involved in widely varied studies at the cutting edge of HIV prevention, TB transmission,Youth adherence and much, much more – the DTHF is the place for you. We welcome both local and international students and appreciate the enthusiasm, creativity and insights young people contribute to our work.
Interns usually are studying at tertiary institutions and their time with us gives valuable practical experience and broadens their knowledge of their field of choice. They may have assignments and reports to submit to their home universities.
Volunteers are welcomed especially at our outreach sites and may be asked to capture data, assist with the adolescents in our behavioural studies, or help in running youth development programmes at our Youth Centre in Masiphumelele.
Key areas of opportunity:
- Medical research methodology
- Statistics and data analysis
- Engagement with youth in local communities
