With USAID's support, the Public Health Institute (PHI) and FACES for the Future Coalition are making the global health workforce more representative of the American people. We know many backgrounds, perspectives, and skill sets remain underrepresented in global health, but research also shows that decisions about career paths are made long before one enters the workforce, often as early as high school.

In 2016 and 2017, PHI partnered with FACES for the Future Coalition to host the Global Health Youth Summit. Each Summit was an immersive activity that exposed college-bound, high school students to global health as a potential career. We invite you to learn about the youth summit by reading and following this blog series.
