Winter field research opportunity for UP students

Posted on March 26, 2018

Seeking a University of Pretoria student to join the Malaria Awareness Program (MAP) for its research and programme implementation in Limpopo and Mpumalanga from June-August of 2018. 

This student researcher will work alongside Programme Coordinators to implement the programme and assist in the research/evaluation process. The student will contribute to greater health knowledge of participants, as well as create a strong bond with the community and further increase 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 community health worker training programme, followed by a multi-week series of education workshops, which take place at the traditional leaders’ home in various villages. MAP falls under the ambit of the University of Pretoria Institute for Sustainable Malaria Control (UP ISMC).
