- Graduates and graduates in health or life sciences, or other health-related qualifications; And
- Health or life sciences students who are in the last year of their studies.
The proposed rotations are educational and are designed for people who are interested in learning about what health problems are in a semi-rural area of a sub-Saharan African country and how they are dealt with using limited resources; as well as for people interested in biomedical, clinical and public health research. In no case is this a volunteer development cooperation programme in the field of health.
