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.

Description

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.
