2021-2022 GHC Fellows Going to the Frontlines

Dear friend,

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce you to the 2021-2022 Global Health Corps fellows: 40 bold, young changemakers from Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. 

The need to support these leaders is urgent  the communities that they and many of our GHC team members and alumni call home are combating a third wave of COVID-19. They’re fighting a 44% spike in new infections and a 20% increase in deaths across the region. Meanwhile, less than five percent of the population have had access to life-saving vaccines.

We’ve launched #LeadershipMatters to propel their efforts to respond to COVID-19 and advance health equity, with nearly $40,000 already raised and a 2x match secured from a generous donor. The pandemic continues to demonstrate that who leaders are and how they lead is a matter of life-and-death for the communities they serve.
