Global Health Corps(GHC) Fellowship for Young Leaders in Sub-Saharan Africa

Talented young leaders with a variety of skill sets and backgrounds are sought out by the Global Health Corps (GHC) Fellowship Program in Sub-Saharan Africa to join and contribute to the movement for health justice.

The Global Health Corps (GHC) fellowship is an exciting opportunity to build skills and gain experience with a high-impact health organization, but it’s also much more than that. It’s a year that will catalyze candidates’ personal and professional growth as leaders, placing them within a global and diverse network of bright, young, and committed health equity champions.

GHC places fellows within high-impact health organizations and Ministries of Health in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia to fill critical roles, from supply chain and data analysis to program implementation and policy and advocacy.

Fellows are mentored by two alumni throughout their fellowship and for the first six months of their post-fellowship careers. They access community wisdom and resources via GHC’s digital community portal. Equipped with more confidence, sharper skills, and a stronger network, fellows transition to our alumni community at the close of their fellowship year.

Duration: 13 months

  • Living stipend
  • Professional development funds
  • Completion award
