Harvard School of Public Health
The mission of Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) is to advance the public's health through learning, discovery, and communication. The Global Health Fellows Program at HSPH is part of the Department of Global Health and Population, which seeks to improve global health through education, research, and service from a population-based perspective. HSPH faculty have worked in virtually every country in the world providing teaching, expert technical assistance, and research. The program draws on faculty members from a wide range of disciplines and technical expertise to serve as mentors for fellows in the field. Faculty mentors represent the various departments within the School of Public Health (including Immunology and Infectious Disease, Nutrition, and Epidemiology), as well as departments from other Harvard schools, such as the Division of AIDS at Harvard Medical School. They provide professional and technical knowledge, guidance, and resources for junior and mid-career fellows.
Share in the implementation of general outreach and program promotion, maintain and strengthen strategies and systems for fellows’ support, implement orientation for new fellows, maintain a high-quality professional mentoring program, implement GHFP internship program, develop USAID partner organization placements, develop state-of-the-art technical exchange sessions and online communities of interest.
