Partially funded by Google.org, Global Health Corps was started by a group of six young people, including Googlers Andrew Bentley and Charlie Hale. GHC connects outstanding young leaders with organizations working on the front lines in order to promote global health equity. With its roots at Google, the program also strongly emphasizes the importance of technology in solving health disparities. Many of the fellowships focus on projects ranging from supply chain logistics to community health work.
We're excited to announce that the pilot program launches this summer, and will include fellowship placements in Tanzania, Rwanda, Malawi, Burundi and the United States. We'd like to encourage all who are interested to apply by April 6th to be a part of this exciting opportunity. For more information, visit www.ghcorps.org or email email@example.com.
