Global Health Corps mobilizes a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for global health equity. Since 2009, Global Health Corps has provided 322 young leaders year-long paid fellowships to work with outstanding organizations focused on healthcare delivery, from non-profit and government partnerships to small grassroots organizations and large global institutions.
Throughout the fellowship year, GHC provides training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities so fellows leave their fellowship equipped to be changemakers in the field of global health.
We believe that a global movement of individuals and organizations fighting for improved healthcare access and health outcomes is necessary in order to change the unacceptable status quo of extreme inequity. GHC works to build this movement by recruiting, training, and supporting the movement's future leaders and by diversifying the pool of young people working in global health.
GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity in year-long paid fellowships. Our fellows have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and draw upon that experience and the GHC alumni network, to deepen their impact throughout their careers.
