Students learn how to use data to create and compare the results of community health interventions in rural and resource-limited regions of Honduras.
Our bilingual, on-the-ground public health technicians guide interns and partner community’s Basic Sanitation Committee (BSC) through the UNDP’s Healthy Schools and Households program, to identify health challenges, assess market demand for in-home infrastructure solutions, and ultimately build a Community Health Action Plan. The internship records the data from multiple interventions in varying communities to compare results and monitor progress over a 16-week initiative.
In addition to our skill-based learning objectives, building cultural competence is integrated into the course to increase the quality of services and improve outcomes with community partners.
