Fellowship Description

The Global Health Corps (GHC) Africa 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 your personal and professional growth as a leader, placing you within a global and diverse network of bright, young, and committed health equity champions. It is – we hope – the beginning of the rest of your career working towards equitable health systems.

The GHC Fellows also have opportunities to:

  • Participate in bespoke training for one week of inspiring sessions with thought leaders, bonding with your cohort, and reflections on your role as a next gen global health leader.
  • Learn as they go.
  • Become part of a supportive, dynamic global community.
  • Build their resilience in the course of the fellowship.
