The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP-II) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with Global Health Corps, GlobeMed, Management Systems International and PYXERA Global. GHFP-II is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

 

GHFP-II’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID health programs by addressing the Agency’s immediate and emerging human capacity needs. The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual working planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available.

 

Looking to the future, GHFP-II also seeks to establish a pool of highly-qualified global health professionals that will ensure the Agency’s ongoing technical leadership and effectiveness. This objective is supported by an extensive outreach program that brings global health opportunities and specialized career advice to a diverse range of interested individuals, with a particular focus on those underrepresented in the field of global health.   

 

BACKGROUND:

USAID procures and distributes over $1 billion in health pharmaceuticals and supplies every year and invests over $200 million annually to strengthen supply chains in developing countries. With over 100 points of origin, over 50 destination countries, more than 4,000 items and hundreds of shipments a year, the amount of data generated from its supply chain operation is significant. In addition, there is data residing in multiple country systems and many other data sources that further support USAID’s supply chain program. USAID is in the process of bringing online a data warehouse and business intelligence tool to house and use these disparate datasets, in the management of its supply chain programs and investments.
