Developing partnerships between World Vision and public health students around the globe
World Vision is partnering with a consortium of universities around the globe in an exciting Global Health Fellows Programme (GHFP). This venture, which includes universities in developing countries, recruits Master-level Fellows to support our global Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN) work. For twelve weeks, Health Fellows will be matched according to their skill sets to World Vision offices implementing our health strategies.
World Vision’s community-based health programming is underway in over 60 countries worldwide! We are looking for Global Health Fellows to collaborate in East and Southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia Pacific regions.
During FY15, the GHFP expanded in scope in order to achieve its goal of accelerating World Vision’s(WV) contribution to the global reduction of maternal and child morbidity and mortality. The number of fellowships grew considerably. As a result, this deepened the GHFP’s impact, reinforcing the capabilities of its foundational framework to enable practical field-level support for WV’s technical teams and professional development for future leaders in global health. Additionally, it enables mutual exposure and organizational networking for all stakeholders involved
