The Global Health Corps

The Global Health Corps provides a yearlong paid fellowship for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity at existing health organizations and government agencies. 


About Us

Global Health Corps mobilizes a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. We place recent college graduate and young professionals from diverse professional backgrounds in health non-profits and government offices in the US, East Africa and Southern Africa for a year of service in order to strengthen and learn from the organization. GHC’s 59 partner organizations include Partners in Health, Clinton Health Access Initiative, Gardens for Health International, and the Covenant House in Newark, New Jersey.

Fellows focus on creating solutions for a variety of current health issues like HIV, maternal child health, nutrition and healthcare access. Through additional training, community building, leadership development and mentorship, these young people complete their fellowship with skills to be change makers and paradigm– shifters in the global health field throughout their careers. Since its founding in 2009, GHC has deployed 450 fellows to work in 7 countries.

Applicants can apply for up to 3 fellowship positions that match their interests and skills. We are looking for people from a broad range of sectors and backgrounds.
