Become a volunteer

As we do not have a physical office, there are no possibilities for internships. However, we could use your time as an online volunteer! Please check out the current short assignment(s) below.

1) Finding resoures for the Information Centre

The IFHHRO Information Centre is part of the IFHHRO Right to Health Wiki. We have been collecting books, reports, manuals, databases etc. on the right to health. We could use your help in expanding these lists. If you are interested in this assignment, please contact us, see below.

2) Updating the IFHHRO Wiki

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to (re)write or update one or more of our Wiki pages on health and human rights. If you are interested in this assignment, please go to the IFHHRO Right to Health Wiki

Check out the section Health and Human Rights by Theme (see the right-hand column). Here we collect information on specific themes (suggestions welcome!). You can choose either an existing theme and rewrite the texts, or a suggested theme and write new texts. We'd also appreciate it if you could collect useful resources (books, reports, etc.) on the theme chosen.

What's in it for you?

After you have finished the assignment, you will be acknowledged as an author in the section that you wrote or updated. And at request, we can send you a letter of recommendation to help you increase your chances in finding a (new) job. 

Still interested?

If you are still interested in contributing to our Wiki, please contact our communications person (Nel van Beelen) and send her some information about:

  • who you are
  • what you would like to do
  • when you could do the job (including a self-imposed deadline)

Please note that our time is limited so we cannot give you extensive guidance. However, you will receive written guidelines and you can always contact us for more information.
