Volunteer Healthcare Corps: In late 2004, AIHA established the HRSA‐funded HIV/AIDS Twinning Center to support PEPFAR objectives to build sustainable institutional and human resource capacity in target countries overseas. The Volunteer Healthcare Corps (VHC) is a distinct yet complementary component of the Twinning Center’s institutional partnership program. It is designed to rapidly expand the pool of trained providers, managers, and allied health staff delivering quality healthcare services—including care to people living with HIV/AIDS—by providing opportunities for skilled professionals from various fields to serve the cause of global health by volunteering their time and expertise. Flexible and dynamic in nature, the VHC works to tailor assignments to the unique skill set of each volunteer, thereby maximizing the benefits on both sides.

CARE USA welcomes and encourages students who are interested in making a difference in the world to consider pursuing an internship. The internship program seeks to provide closely monitored, project-driven professional and practical experience for undergraduate and graduate students interested in contributing to substantive CARE projects and initiatives. Important networking opportunities are also provided through participation in orientations and trainings that will include information on CARE’s history, vision, and where individuals from within the organization will share more in-depth information on certain programs. Interns are placed domestically either at CARE USA Headquarters in Atlanta or in US field offices.
