Global Health Corps


Global Health Corps (GHC) mobilizes a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. GHC believes young leaders with diverse backgrounds and a deep commitment to collaboration, innovation, and social justice are going to revolutionize how the world tackles its toughest health challenges. We strongly believe our GHC community is the new breed of leaders that the world desperately needs.


Through a competitive recruitment process, we identify daring and innovativeuniversity graduates and early- to mid-career professionals from around the world and pair them with amazing partner organizations and government agencies in the US, East Africa, and Southern Africa. Our fellows spend a year in their placement devoting their unstoppable energy to making the world a healthier place for all people, everywhere. Whether they are working with a small grassroots organization like HIPS in Washington, DC to ensure sex workers have access to critical health services, or with the Ministry of Health in Zambia researching patient use of HIV testing and counseling, each fellow plays an essential role in the health equity movement.


Fellows come together five times a year for additional training, community building, leadership development, and mentorshipto become audacious, resilient, and highly-networked changemakers. 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 nearly 740 fellows working at various levels of the health system, across issue areas and across continents, and our community gets stronger every year.

The Work


GHC recruits and selects organizations that excel in improving healthcare access and health outcomes for people in impoverished communities and marginalized populations. Additionally, our placement organizations prioritize health equity and social justice in their work; identify an area of need that would benefit from two or more energetic and innovative young leaders; have the capacity to supervise and support two or more new full-time staff and can contributetowards the cost of fellows.


Since our start in 2009, we have grown from 8 placement organizations to almost seventy for the 2016-2017 fellowship year. They range from small grassroots organizations to international NGOs like Partners in Health and CHAI to government agencies like the Ministry of Health in Uganda. The health issues they focus on are equally diverse and include maternal and reproductive health, malaria, HIV/AIDS, health systems strengthening and nutrition.


 


To date, we have received extremely positive feedback from our placement organizations who have found great value in having GHC fellows working on their programs. Specifically, 95% of our partners from the 2015-16 fellowship year said fellows met or exceeded goals of their work assignments and 78% said our fellows presented new or innovative ways of doing things.


 


The partnership recruitment and selection process is an intense process that requires an ability to work with Country teams to identify and vet organizations who can provide a meaningful experience for fellows and have the infrastructure and approach to health equity that aligns with GHC’s mission. It is an annual process which includes evaluating partnership renewals as well as new placement organizations. GHC plans toexpand placement organizations in all of our current countries as well as explore additional opportunities for growth within Africa and to other continents.
