Global Health Corps is building a community of committed young leaders who share a common belief: Health is a human right. We provide opportunities for talented young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the front-lines of the fight for global health equity in year-long, paid fellowships. Our fellows have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and continue to draw upon their fellowship experience and the GHC alumni network to deepen the impact they have throughout their careers.

Fellows are placed in organizations in pairs – one international fellow and one local fellow – creating a fellowship team that is a central part of the fellowship experience.
