Global Health Corps
- New York
Global Health Corps (GHC) is a community of leaders around the world working together to transform health systems in order to achieve health equity. GHC believes that the greatest lever for change in global health is great leadership, and that’s what we’re building. Our fellowship model harnesses the tremendous supply of bright, talented young leaders around the world who are passionate about health equity, developing this talent to meet the demand of our partner organizations on the front lines of health equity in five countries in the Northeast US (NYC, Newark, Boston, and Washington, DC) and East (Uganda and Rwanda) and Southern Africa (Malawi and Zambia).
Through a 13-month placement, our fellows work daily in health organizations solving a wide range of challenges, across health issues and health systems. To complement this experiential learning, our robust leadership development curriculum builds them as resilient, empathetic, and results-oriented leaders working to effect social change. 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. Since its founding in 2009, GHC has supported nearly 900 fellows – the vast majority of who are now highly engaged and effective alumni working in leadership positions in the field of global health.
