Program and Operations Coordinator Job Careers – Global Health Corps (GHC)

 

Job Title:    Program and Operations
Coordinator

Organization:  Global Health Corps (GHC)

Duty Station:  Kampala,
Uganda

 

About US:

Global Health Corps
(GHC) is building a new generation of global health leadership. We believe that
solving the world’s most pressing global health challenges requires better and
more connected leaders who are able to work across traditional boundaries like
geography, sector, and issue area to engineer stronger global health systems.
We need more than clinicians and providers; we need management consultants,
engineers, artists, and architects. We need new leadership voices and new
perspectives, especially those representing the populations most often left out
and unheard.

 

GHC competitively
recruits and selects emerging leaders from around the world who represent a
wide range of skill sets and areas of expertise, all of which are critical to
rebuilding and strengthening health systems. GHC is developing a cadre of
health equity leaders through a unique leadership development program that
utilizes experiential and formal learning methods.

 

Through a one-year
fellowship program, fellows address a wide-range of health issues with
high-impact grassroots organizations, NGOs, and ministries of health in Rwanda,
Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and the United States. Fellowship positions are
demand-driven, ensuring that our fellows fill real-time health systems gaps and
serve to amplify the great work already in progress. Placement organizations
benefit from the skills and energy of fellows, as well as the support of GHC.  We are building a network of young change
makers who share the common belief that health is a human right.
