The International Alliance for the Prevention of AIDS (IAPA) and the ASU School of Human Evolution and Social Change are excited to continue their partnership to provide this unique Global Health Volunteer Internship in Chennai, Tamil Nadu-India. The ASU faculty mentor for this program is Alissa Ruth.
Over 8 weeks, students will work with IAPA to develop and deliver AIDS education in a variety of teaching sites, including government and private secondary schools, as well as universities. Students who participate in this internship (and receive credit through the School of Human Evolution and Social Change) can count this for the global health study abroad requirement.
One of the goals of IAPA is to provide a rewarding and life-changing experience for both the volunteers who come from the United States, as well as those who are from India. This is accomplished in several ways, including:
In addition to curbing the spread of HIV, a major focus of this organization is to show the volunteers the beauty of India and encourage them to invest their hearts in Indian culture while continuing to fight against HIV. We believe that by doing this the volunteers are motivated to an even greater degree to have a lasting impact in Chennai.
Students will receive 6 credits of SSH 403: Cross-Cultural Studies in Global Health (fulfills CLAS Science & Society; and/or fulfills General Studies L/SB & G).
(Deadline for 2018 program has passed.)

Students from other universities and colleges are welcome to participate in this program but, for course registration and risk management purposes, must first be admitted to ASU for the summer only as nondegree seeking students before starting their summer program application.
