Where We Work

Global Health Leaders currently has fellows placed in India, South Africa, and Brazil. The program will soon expand to other countries across the globe.

This amazing fellowship is aiming to create a pool of skilled people that can work in both the private sector and the public sector - really looking at business issues while at the same time looking at public health issues - and I think this is very important.

"I was diagnosed with hypertension when I was just 27 years old. Now I am managing two chronic illnesses (hypertension and HIV) which have forced me to make better lifestyle choices." --Babalwa Nelani, mothers2mothers (m2m) Mentor Mother in South Africa

m2m was excited to announce at a virtual launch event today that we are expanding our services to prevent and manage non-communicable diseases, #NCDs, in the Western Cape of South Africa, thanks to a new partnership with Medtronic Foundation.

NCDs—which include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension—are a large, and growing, public health issue in sub-Saharan Africa. In South Africa, 51% of deaths are already caused by NCDs.

With support from the Western Cape Department of Health and the City of Cape Town, Mentor Mothers like Babalwa will use our proven peer-based, community-focused model to educate and support new and existing clients on NCDS and how to manage them. A big thank you to Medtronic Foundation for making this important expansion of our services possible!
