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.
