I worked as a Monitoring and Evaluation intern for the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) Project by outlining program accomplishments and their potential impact on target populations in approximately 35 partnering countries. Additionally, I provided technical support in specific program activities ranging from developing Health Accounts tables in Namibia to conducting literature reviews on health systems strengthening interventions.
The HFG Project significantly enhanced my understanding of how health systems strengthening interventions can potentially lead to improved health outcomes in low and middle-income countries. The breadth and depth of technical activities undertaken by the International Health team across many countries allowed me to work closely with highly experienced development practitioners. My role provided me with hands-on experience working for a leading implementation partner for USAID, and further solidified my commitment towards global health and development.
  The projects I worked on were very much in line with my expectations. Although my work was mainly related to early education, I’ve been able to work on many different projects with many different people, and I’ve learned about other SEP projects besides just ones in education. During the summer, I had 2-3 main projects, and the one I spent most of my time on actually aligned very well with a policy memo I chose to write in my Education and Social Policy class at Brandeis.
The Abternship was a great internship experience. I really enjoyed the events, panels, and speakers, which contributed to an excellent overall experience. I also had the opportunity to continue working part-time at Abt during my senior year.
  I worked with the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project on a study that explored the expansion of health coverage to informal workers in countries with poor maternal and child health and family planning outcomes.
Engaging in this study and learning about the other activities under HFG and Abt’s International Health team greatly enhanced my understanding of health systems functions and the realities of public health work in low- to moderate-income countries. I also was grateful for the opportunity to work closely with highly experienced and knowledgeable public health professionals. My experience confirmed my interest in international health and made me all the more excited to pursue in it.
