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 sections Health and Human Rights by Theme and Health and Human Rights by Country (see the right-hand column). Here we collect information on specific themes (suggestions welcome!) and countries. You can choose either:
1) one theme and rewrite the texts or create new texts, or
2) search for documents on the health and human rights situation in a particular country (or more countries) on the internet.
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.
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.
