Mission Statement

Our Mission:

Our mission is to mobilize a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. We are building a community of changemakers who share a common belief: Health is a human right.

We believe that every person has the right to live a healthy, dignified life. We also believe that everyone has a role to play in advancing social justice through the health equity movement.

We embrace a philosophy of active problem solving and partnership that is designed to bring about real and sustainable progress. We are committed to creating a new breed of health sector leaders who develop innovative solutions to the most challenging health problems all over the world.


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.

Fellows focus on creating solutions for a variety of current health issues like HIV, maternal and 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.

GHC puts their NGO network over the support and safety of their fellows. Sides with that organization and not fellows. (It can work out if the organization is well-funded with several previous fellows. But definitely not the norm) They will stand by idly if your organization mistreats you. If the org failed to arrange housing dont expect GHC to find something for you. You'll be backpacking to work for months. They say they provide furnished housing, dont be surprised if you spend your stipend on furniture (fridge, stove, etc). Was told I would be living alone, (the sole reason I left my former full-time position) but was placed in a house with a racist roommate. When I complained I was put on 90 probation. Begged for help and was told I was wasting GHC resources. My org basically used us for free grunt work. We werent allowed in trainings, conferences, or barely on work trips. Even though we both carried multiple masters degrees they called us Data Entry volunteers.
