Bold Idea 

Develop the next generation of global health leaders and improve the quality of healthcare services for the poor by connecting outstanding young professionals from around the world with health-focused organizations.

 
Organization 
Global Health Corps (GHC) partners with organizations with proven success but limited resources to host international teams of young professionals for a yearlong fellowship. GHC works with the organizations to identify specific needs and outline a measurable assignment for the fellows. GHC recruits outstanding fellows from the U.S. and abroad who possess skills that will add immediate value to the organization and who show strong leadership potential. GHC provides extensive training and the fellows receive mentoring, professional development, and social and financial support.
