My internship took place from 7/08/05 to 9/17/05 in Amman, Jordan. I worked with both JHCP and HPC/GS. Their offices were a couple miles apart so I split my time between the two offices. My internship with both organizations heavily involved project proposal writing and building staff capacity regarding proposal writing and writing in general. I worked with mainly with my preceptors and took assignments from them. They reviewed my work and gave suggestions. Originally I planned to focus on conducting surveys and data analysis but after arriving to the site proposal writing skills were of higher demand. I conducted workshops to train staff at JHCP and HPC as well as staff from various NGO’s and at the Jordanian University Medical School. I also participated in the development of media materials. I helped design the layout of various materials such as newsletters and other communication materials.
