The United States

The United States is one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world, but health inequity persists in every city and state around the country. Although the Affordable Care Act has expanded healthcare access to millions of Americans in need, there is a long way to go.usmap_122016

We have proudly worked in the Northeast of the US since 2009. We partner with community-based providers, City Departments of Health, and NGOs in cities throughout the country’s northeast on issues such as HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, needle exchange programs, and support for youth experiencing homelessness.


Our fellows are Americans committed to improving healthcare access in their own country and young leaders from other places who bring a rich mix of experiences and knowledge to ensuring health equity in the US. To date, we’ve developed nearly 174
young leaders placed within 33 partner organizations in the US. Our robust alumni network is highly engaged throughout the US more broadly, helping to ensure access to quality care and services across the country.
