Useful info

Join the "Public Health Advocates"

Why? To connect, to learn from each other, to become more effective advocates. Because "advocacy" is a skill which can be learned, but which is rarely part of formal public health education.

Who? Early to mid-career public health professionals who define themselves as "advocates" (which can e.g. mean to be regularly in the media or to be part of a campaign or NGO). Participants are from different countries and focus on different issues (e.g. tobacco control or climate change).

What? In this group, participants can share different kind of information, experiences and questions. E.g. articles about advocacy skills, stories about effective advocacy campaigns and questions about how to get covered by the media.

How to join? Joining the email-list is without obligations and can be cancelled at any time. If you are interested, just contact florian.stigler@medunigraz.at. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You can also follow them on Twitter

WHO Internship

WHO is the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations system. WHO has 194 Member States and more than 7000 people working in 150 country offices, in 6 regional offices and at headquarter in Geneva. WHO offers internships globally in our country and regional offices, as well as at headquarters.


The WHO internship programme has three objectives: (a) to provide a framework for assigning students from diverse academic backgrounds to WHO programmes, where educational experience can be enhanced through practical work assignments; (b) to expose students to the work of WHO and (c) to provide WHO programmes with the assistance of students specializing in various fields. Most students are placed in health-related programmes, although placements in other area of work like for example communication, external relations, finance or human resources are also possible.
