Description

Care for our world through Peace Corps. Public health specialists are needed to address issues of global maternal and child health, nutrition and hygiene, education about prevention of infections and vaccine-preventable diseases as well as HIV/AIDs and malaria. Help improve a community's basic healthcare and develop sustainable solutions for community members to adopt healthy behaviors, while gaining global skills for your career.

One of the most serious worldwide threats to public health and development is the spread of HIV/AIDS. The Peace Corps is a key partner and implementer of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which provides assistance to countries most affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In this special presentation, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers share their stories of working with communities around the world dealing with HIV/AIDS.
