The Global Fund Internship Program is an opportunity to enable students or those who have recently graduated to expand their knowledge and practical work experience. The program allows interns to be part of an international health financing organization whose commitment is to increase capacity in the fight against three diseases: HIV / AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The program will substantially increase understanding of the issues faced by an international health financing organization and prepare interns for a career in health financing, government affairs, international aid or indeed, several commercial fields.
The deadline for applying for internships at the Global Fund has passed, and we are no longer accepting applications for the 2013 program.
What kind of visa do I need for an internship at the Global Fund?
Prior to your arrival, unless your country is exempt from this requirement, you will need an entry visa to Switzerland. If you need to apply for an entry visa, The Global Fund will provide you with a support letter to attach to your visa application.
How can I find somewhere to live in Geneva?
Finding housing in Geneva can be difficult so you should start looking as soon as possible. There are a few options to explore:
Renting a room in a students' residence (CHF 1,000 per month): There are a number of residences or student/youth accommodation in Geneva. Many interns working for UN and other International Organizations also stay here
Renting a room in a flat/apartment (min. CHF 1,000 per month): Advertisements for a room in a flat can be obtained through the university accommodation service, newspapers and expat forums
Sub-letting a flat (min. 1,200 chf): As Geneva is quite a transitory place, people often go on temporary missions abroad and sublet their apartments for a short period
You can consult our “Living and working in Geneva” page for more info.
Will this internship lead to a job at the Global Fund afterward?
Interns are not guaranteed employment after their internship. Any employment with the Global Fund after this period shall be subject to established recruitment and selection processes and procedures.
We are currently reviewing our internship program for the year 2014. Once this has been finalized we will publish more information here. We aim to have this available at the end of November.
Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for the 2013 program.
