Announcing the
2021-2022 Fellow Class

GHC is honored to launch our 2021-2022 fellow cohort of 40 young changemakers advancing health equity in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. 

With a third wave of COVID-19 on the rise and low vaccine rates in East and Southern Africa, it’s a critical time to invest in young, proximate leaders in the region.

Filling Critical Gaps on the Frontlines of Global Health

GHC’s 2021-2022 fellows will join the fight for global health equity, filling critical roles in data analysis, architecture, eHealth, supply chain, behavior change communications, and more with important health organizations including Partners in Health, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, PATH, AMREF, Ministries of Health, and others.

Working Across Health Systems

GHC selected these fellows for their potential to drive health systems change and their desire to grow as leaders and join our thriving, global network of changemakers. Collectively, they have and will make an impact across a wide range of health issues: COVID-19 response, sexual and reproductive health and rights, water and sanitation, NCDs, malaria and HIV/AIDS eradication, gender-based violence, LGBTQIA+ health, and more. 

Delivering Impact

Since 2009, Global Health Corps trained, supported, and amplified the impact of over 1,000 young health equity leaders. Our programs has invested in their development early and often throughout their careers. We have:

  • accelerated the careers of 700+ women to close the gender gap in global health leadership.
  • facilitated 500+ young leaders’ speaking & writing engagements.
  • Awarded $100K+ in seed funding for young leaders’ to launch health-related social enterprises. 
  • Supported our leaders to respond to community needs through COVID-19 Coalitions in 8 countries.

Global Health Corps is grateful to our community of supporters whose generous contributions enable the success of our leadership development programs. Thanks to them, our powerful network of health equity leaders continues to grow in size and influence.
