Global Health Corps’ purpose has always been to mobilize the next generation of health equity leaders. Developing a strong workforce and effective, networked leadership is an essential contribution to health systems strengthening efforts.
We'll invite citizens of nine additional countries in the region to apply to join our community by 2023, and we'll recruit and train 180 total emerging leaders over the next three years.
We'll begin a pilot program for emerging public health leaders in 2023, aiming to support 100 fellows by 2025.
We'll build out targeted programming and partnerships to cultivate collective action and meet the needs of our community, which will grow to 1400+ by 2025.
We'll deepen our work in coalitions, research, advocacy, and narrative change to create a more enabling environment for leadership development in global health.
Since 2009, Global Health Corps (GHC) has built a network of 1150+ next gen leaders committed to transforming health systems. Through a robust fellowship and alumni program, GHC seeds the health sector with innovative and resilient young leaders and invests in them to grow and drive systems change across their careers.
GHC serves as a critical talent pipeline for its partners, an entry point to global health for non-clinical leaders who join as fellows, and a leadership accelerator for alumni and their networks. While GHC leaders are concentrated in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and the U.S., the network has a truly global reach across 40+ countries and 450+ health organizations.
In the wake of COVID-19, GHC is changing the who of health leadership by recruiting and training more women, Africans, and people with non-clinical expertise who have long been underrepresented in decision making. GHC is also changing the how of health leadership, cultivating critical traits for meeting today’s challenges including systems thinking, design thinking, empathy, humility, resilience, and adaptability.
Over the next three years, Global Health Corps will expand our diverse network of health equity leaders, equipping them to solve the world's most pressing challenges. We'll recruit and train nearly 300 additional leaders in the U.S. and Sub-Saharan Africa, and we'll catalyze the growth and impact of our tight-knit alumni network.
We are deeply grateful to the many partners — foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals — who have journeyed with us over the past 13 years and supported our growth. As we enter the next phase, we are eager to deepen these relationships and establish new partnerships.
