JOB DETAILS:
Since 2009, Global Health Corps’ (GHC) has built a global community of 1,000+ young leaders who are working to transform health systems around the world. The entry point to our high-impact community is a paid 13-month fellowship with placements in nonprofit and government health organizations in East and Southern Africa. In addition to filling capacity gaps on a range of health issues, fellows participate in bespoke leadership training and community building activities.
Our tight-knit network of alumni work at 240+ organizations across more than 45 countries, with 95 percent retained in the health and social impact field. A growing number are now in management positions where they are charged with making key decisions that directly impact health outcomes. We support their leadership development beyond our fellowship program through ongoing coaching, mentorship, and training on topics such as advocacy and management. As GHC leaders continue to gain influence and mobilize others outside the GHC community, their impact generates a ripple effect across the global health ecosystem.
Committed to promoting gender equity as a key component of health equity, a critical mass of GHC’s leaders are working to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). To date, GHC has hosted six high-level convenings and advocacy trainings with a focus on SRHR and primary healthcare in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia in partnership with Ministries of Health and other key stakeholders. These events have provided our alumni with opportunities to hone their voices as advocates, build their leadership profiles, and connect with others beyond the GHC community to amplify their impact. The organization has secured funding from two major donors to ramp up these efforts over the next year.
