GHC believes young leaders with diverse backgrounds and a deep commitment to collaboration, innovation, and social justice are going to revolutionize how the world tackles its toughest health challenges.
Through a competitive recruitment process, we identify daring and innovative university graduates and early- to mid-career professionals from around the world and pair them with amazing partner organizations and government agencies in the US, East Africa, and Southern Africa. Our fellows spend a year in their placement devoting their unstoppable energy to making the world a healthier place for all people, everywhere.
Fellows convene throughout the year for additional training, community building, leadership development, and mentorship in order to become audacious, resilient, and highly-networked changemakers. Since its founding in 2009, GHC has supported over 1000 fellows working at various levels of the health system, across issue areas and across continents.
