Graduate Assistantships: Hispaniola Initiative

The Carter Center's Hispaniola Initiative works with the ministries of health in Haiti and the Dominican Republic to accelerate the elimination of malaria and lymphatic filariasis from the countries' shared island, Hispaniola, by 2020. As part of its efforts to enhance community engagement regarding malaria and lymphatic filariasis elimination in Haiti, The Carter Center recently initiated a radio-based awareness campaign through a partnership with local musicians. The Hispaniola Initiative seeks an interested and qualified student to help evaluate the effectiveness of this campaign.

The selected student will take a lead role in designing and implementing an evaluation of the media campaign. This will likely include a combination of qualitative and quantitative research. In addition, the student will be expected to help implement primary data collection in Haiti, in collaboration with local Carter Center staff and other partners. Results from this evaluation will help tailor the existing campaign, and inform development of future multi-media campaigns.

The anticipated timeframe for this project is August 2017 – August 2018.
