The Global Health Corps (GHC) believes that a global movement of individuals and organizations fighting for improved health outcomes and access to healthcare for the poor is necessary in order to change the unacceptable status quo of extreme inequity. GHC works to build this movement by recruiting, training, and supporting the movement's future leaders and by diversifying the pool of young people working in global health. GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity in year-long fellowships. Our fellows will have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and draw upon that experience and the GHC alumni network, to deepen their impact throughout their careers.


Global Health Corps Fellows must: 

  • Be under age 30 at the time of application 
  • Have an undergraduate university degree by July 2013 
  • Be proficient in English No specific background or technical experience is necessary, as each individual fellowship placement will require different specific skills.
