VAW Global Health Alliances strongly encourages all interns to book their flight with VAW Global to ensure intern’s in-country safety. We understand that on occasion, however, interns prefer to book their own flight for a multitude of reasons.
This form provides VAW Global with the necessary information for understanding why you’ve chosen to book your flight independently as well as the basic details of your trip. Please note that you will need to send VAW Global your full, confirmed flight itinerary at least two months prior to your team’s departure.
