Winter field-research opportunity for UP students: Last chance to apply!

Posted on March 30, 2017


We are looking for University of Pretoria students who are interested in joining the Malaria Awareness Programme (MAP) for our research and the implementation of our programme in Limpopo and Mpumalanga from June to August 2017. The student researchers who are chosen will work alongside the coordinators to implement the programme and assist in the research/evaluation process. They will also contribute towards enhancing the health knowledge of the participants, creating a strong bond with the community and further increasing the sustainability of the programme.

MAP is a project of One Sun Health (OSH), a non-profit organisation that aims to promote sustainable, locally driven solutions to public health challenges through community health education and social entrepreneurship initiatives. MAP involves an intensive training programme for community health workers, followed by a multi-week series of education workshops, which will be presented at the homes of traditional leaders in various villages. MAP falls under the ambit of the University of Pretoria Institute for Sustainable Malaria Control (UP ISMC).

Please note: This is not a job opportunity, but merely an opportunity to participate in research and community-based malaria-related health promotion and education. Participation will involve certain expenses and students who wish to make use of this opportunity must be able to cover their own costs.

Attached please find the OSH Programme Coordinator’s overview and an application document.


DEADLINE: 30 April 2017!
