For our team and community of health equity leaders at Global Health Corps (GHC), 2022 was about charting a new normal in the wake of COVID-19. We welcomed our 14th fellow cohort across Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia, growing our network to 1200+ and counting. We transitioned our 2021-2022 fellows into our lifelong alumni community and supported alumni across cohorts and countries to save and improve more lives. We also gathered as a team in Rwanda and mapped out our 2022-2025 strategic plan. As we reflected and reconnected, one big question guided us: what do we bring into the next chapter and what do we leave behind?
Our purpose is unwavering and more important than ever: mobilize the next generation of equity-driven leaders to transform health systems to deliver quality care for all. Over the next few years, we’ll boldly advance that purpose in new ways — from launching a reimagined fellowship in the U.S. and expanding our fellowship in Sub-Saharan Africa to growing our alumni program and championing leadership as a lever for transforming global health. The challenges before us are immense. Yet the diverse, tight-knit GHC community daily reaffirms our belief in the power of people.
Thank you for believing and working alongside us this year. Together, we can unlock the potential of more rising leaders and enable their visions for healthier, stronger communities.
