Student Internship Opportunity with the International Center for Human Development (ICHD)


Project Description:

ICHD internship programme has been temporarily suspended.

Since 2014, ICHD in partnership of the UNFPA-Armenia and with the support of USAID has been implementing the project “Community Awareness Raising Campaign throughout Armenia” (CARCATA). The project is implemented in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health of RA, and regional administrations. CARCATA’s goal is to raise the knowledge of the Armenians countrywide on proper reproductive health care and use of modern methods of contraception. The project is designed to influence the current perceptions and use of modern contraceptives, and to address social issues that affect contraceptive behavior. It strives to provide accurate information about the benefits of family planning for women, their children, and their families in the framework of a larger UNFPA/USAID project on “Promoting Contraceptive Security in Armenia”.
One of the specific objectives of CARCATA is development and dissemination of relevant public education materials. ICHD intends to develop also a target page on Wikipedia Armenia on the methods of contraception. A number of discussions with different stakeholders and recent research data show that the young Armenians tend to get this information mostly online. Thus, there is a need to develop reliable online reference for public use.

  • identify relevant sources in English;

  • translate and adapt English content for Armenian audiences;
  • gather references to include in a Wikipedia article;
  • participate in working meetings with project partners and practitioners;
  • create new Wikipedia articles in Armenian.
