Global Health Corps fellows work in partnership teams (1 national fellow, and 1 international fellow) with organizations in East Africa, Southern Africa, and the United States that are strengthening health systems and improving health outcomes in impoverished communities. Though applicants may come from diverse backgrounds (such as finance, information technology, or architecture), the program provides them with leadership, and professional development opportunities that allow them to, through their placement, apply these skills to solving global health challenges.
Applicants must be 30 years or younger, hold a bachelor’s or undergraduate university degree, and be proficient in English. Applicants who are citizens of Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, the U.S. or Zambia may apply for positions in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, or Zambia. Citizens from other countries can apply for U.S. based positions provided they have legal visitor status in the U.S.
