What is the Global Health Corps Fellowship?
Global Health Corps is a community of emerging leaders who believe that great ideas don’t change the world, great PEOPLE do! We provide opportunities for talented young professionals from diverse sectors and backgrounds to work in leading health-focused organizations in year-long, paid fellowship positions. The fellowship begins in July 2021 and extends through July 2022. Positions are available in nonprofit, government, and private sector organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. Fellows engage in training, professional development, and thoughtful community-building, and continue to draw upon their fellowship experience and the GHC alumni network as they build careers of lasting impact.
Applicants apply to a specific position within a specific organization and in a specific country, just like applying for a job. Fellows are selected based on their ability to fit that job description and their fit with the GHC leadership practices. To learn more about the GHC leadership practices, visit: http://ghcorps.org/apply/
Fellows are placed in organizations in pairs– one international fellow and one local fellow from the placement country– creating a fellowship team that is a central part of the fellowship experience. .
The Rwandan Ministry of Health (MOH) is making efforts to digitize its services by implementing the eHealth Strategy which is part of the Smart Rwanda Master Plan. The goal of the master plan is to take the country to the next level of productivity and efficiency. It aims to bring advances in health technology, policy, and other areas to the country in order to improve performance, quality, and safety in the health sector.
The eHealth Project Manager will support the MOH in its eHealth activities by assessing progress made towards achieving existing goals and by identifying and addressing gaps that may be limiting the MOH’s ability to digitize health services.
