Welcome to the USAID Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II Performance & Career Development (PCD) Blog Series! Our PCD team has amassed over 10 years of experience that we are eager to share with the wider community of current and aspiring global health professionals. Based on research with a broad range of the top global health employers, the blog series will provide an excellent overview of “what it takes” to make it as a global health professional.
Through the blog series, the PCD team seeks to give you an inside look at several global health workers as they navigate their current positions and plan for their next career opportunities. Using the unique perspectives of our participants, we hope to make the components of the GHFP-II competency framework (which include organizational dynamics, leadership, interpersonal effectiveness, cultural acumen, and collaboration) more tangible and accessible.
