The Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) is looking for three interns (social worker, fundraiser and communications advisor) to support our project work in Zimbabwe. The project is called Simba Utano (Health is Power) and is funded by Global Affairs Canada. It is being implemented through a collaboration of two Canadian organizations, ICAD and the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) and two local Zimbabwean organizations, Youth Engage and Katswe Sistahood. The staff of both Zimbabwean organizations have extensive experience working with young and vulnerable populations on the issues of human rights and health and more specifically sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and HIV.
The project is addressing the demand side of health service delivery. This is being done by working in priority districts to address the systemic barriers to accessing health which includes the socio-cultural norms and traditional community beliefs that impede access and utilization of services especially for adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). From the supply side, the project is strengthening health and governance systems to support the delivery of quality and responsive SRHR and HIV services for AGYW.
The intern will support the advocacy component of Katswe programming by contributing to its media, digital and communication activities. Tasks will focus on the following areas:
Eligible Requirements and Essential Conditions:
Because of the time difference between Canada and Zimbabwe and communication challenges, our partners would prefer this to be a part-time position of either 25 or 20 hours/week. The position would commence on 6 July and end on either the 16 September or 8 October. Salary is $14.25/hour plus mandatory employment relate costs (MERCs)
If you are interested in applying for the position, please submit your CV and cover letter in one document (Word or PDF) by midnight on June 29, 2021, by email to [email protected]
We thank all applicants in advance, but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
