The extreme disparity in health outcomes and access to healthcare that exists today between the world’s rich and the world’s poor is unjust and unsustainable. To change this unacceptable status quo requires a new generation of leaders with diverse skills and backgrounds. Emerging leaders need opportunities to build their skillsets and build meaningful connections with other young leaders who share a vision for transformative change.
Global Health Corps is mobilizing a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. Passionate young leaders enter the GHC community by participating in yearlong paid fellowship opportunities. During this year, GHC fellows serve in positions of impact within outstanding organizations in sub-Saharan Africa. They also engage in intensive training, professional development opportunities, mentorship and thoughtful community-building.
Fellows work in teams of 2—one international fellow, one in-country fellow—on a wide range areas that improve healthcare access and health outcomes for the poor. Fellows have built financial management systems for grassroots HIV organizations in Uganda, supported district pharmacies in Rwanda in rolling out new supply chain management tools, and conducted research on adolescent sexual and reproductive health services in Zambia. Each one of our community members has the capacity to change the world – and many already are – and we are grateful to work closely with them to amplify their impact. Since its founding in 2009, GHC has supported more than 1000 fellows working at various levels of the health system, across issue areas and across continents, and our community gets stronger every year.
As Global Health Corps enters its second decade, it is poised to harness the full potential of its community and contribute to real health systems change. Through collective leadership, GHC brings together these diverse actors needed to solve the complex and challenging problems. Adaptive and innovative, GHC leaders are ready and able to solve tomorrow’s health problems, today.
