Global Health Corps

The extreme disparity in health outcomes and access to healthcare that exists today between the world’s rich and the world’s poor is unjust and unsustainable. To change this unacceptable status quo will require a new generation of leaders with diverse skills and backgrounds. Emerging leaders need opportunities to build their skillsets and build meaningful connections with other young leaders who share a vision for transformative change.

Global Health Corps is mobilizing a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. We do this by providing yearlong paid fellowship opportunities to passionate young leaders. During their fellowship year, GHC fellows serve in positions of impact within outstanding organizations in the US and sub-Saharan Africa. They also engage in intensive training, professional development opportunities, mentorship and thoughtful community building.

Fellows work in teams of 2—one international fellow, one in-country fellow—on a wide range of areas that improve healthcare access and health outcomes for the poor. Fellows have built financial management systems for grassroots HIV organizations in Uganda, counseled homeless teenagers in New Jersey, supported district pharmacies in Rwanda in rolling out new supply chain management tools, and conducted policy research in Washington, DC.

Position Overview:

Global Health Corps is seeking creative, well-organized, hard-working interns to support the 2016-2017 fellowship program. Interns will work closely with the Program team, and will gain first-hand understanding of the day to day operations of a young entrepreneurial non-profit.

Interns will be given significant responsibilities and a fair amount of autonomy, so preference will be given to those applicants who are interested in managing projects over the course of multiple months. This is a great opportunity to be part of a young, growing nonprofit and to gain valuable experience in program development and management.
