The extreme disparity in access to healthcare and health outcomes across our globe is unjust and unsustainable. Changing this status quo requires a new generation of leaders with diverse skills and backgrounds. These leaders need opportunities to build their skillsets and networks in pursuit of transformative change in healthcare.
Global Health Corps (GHC) recruits and mobilizes a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. Passionate young leaders enter the GHC community by participating in a year-long, paid fellowship with an organization in sub-Saharan Africa. During the fellowship, they work in cross-national pairs on a wide range of 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. They also engage in intensive training, professional development, mentorship, and thoughtful community building. Each of our fellows has the capacity to change the world – and many already are. We are grateful to work closely with them to amplify their impact.
Since its founding in 2009 , Global Health Corps has supported more than 1000 fellows working on health issues and health equity across the globe. Adaptive and innovative, GHC leaders are ready and able to solve tomorrow’s health problems, today.
Global Health Corps (GHC) seeks a strategic, nimble, systems thinker and executor to join us as our Vice President of People & Operations (VPPO).
