Description du stage : Project Description:
The Gender-Based Analysis Research and Capacity Officers at all three regional offices of SAHARA (Southern Africa - Cape Town, South Africa; West Africa - Dakar, Senegal; East and Central Africa - Kisumu, Kenya) will support SAHARA in realizing their mandate to incorporate gender into all levels of their organization's work. This includes: building capacity to integrate GBA into all research proposals, activities, analysis and reporting; facilitating gender equality in hiring and training decisions within the organization; and the development of gender mainstreaming policies within their organization. Furthermore, the interns will assist researchers to disseminate research findings and knowledge translation to ensure the uptake of new knowledge into policy and programming spheres.
SAHARA is committed to multi-site and multi-country social and behavioural research on HIV/AIDS. They are currently developing their five year plan and have a organizational mandate to ensure their research reflects the gendered dimensions of the epidemic. The interns will work with SAHARA's regional directors and research coordinators to help fulfill this mandate.
The South African-based intern will also assist with the data analysis and dissemination of findings from the 2008 South African National HIV/AIDS Prevalence, Incidence and Behavioural Survey (SABSSM III). This household survey is being held up as a model for accurate measurement of HIV incidence and prevalence and may be replicated in neighbouring countries as resources become available.

Overseas Job Description:
The intern will assist in the analysis of SABSSM III using a gender-based analytical lens. This will involve statistical analysis, literature review, and the writing of academic articles.
The intern will facilitate the use of gender-based analysis throughout the data-collection stage of a study on male circumcision, which is currently being implemented.
The intern will assist region SAHARA staff to employ a gender-based analytical lens to data-collection on other research projects as they arise, and will assist with funding proposals as required.

Qualifications:
The intern will have a background in women's issues, gender health, and/or HIV/AIDS. Solid research and analytical skills will be considered essential, and previous experience in Africa will be considered a strong asset. Demonstrated ability to adapt to culturally diverse situations will also be advantageous. Given the high level of research competency required for this internship, a postgraduate degree will be extremely beneficial to the successful applicant.
