UNFPA accepts no responsibility for the medical insurance for the intern or for any costs arising from accidents and/or illness during the internship period. Applicants are required to provide evidence of adequate medical insurance coverage.
UNFPA is not responsible for any claims by an intern or third party in the case of loss or damage to property or death or personal injury as a result of actions or omissions on the part of the intern during the internship period.
During the internship session, interns will be provided with a desk and computer access.
Further Career Opportunities:

Interns with UNFPA shall not be eligible for recruitment as a staff member within a 2 months period following the conclusion of their internship.
