Global Health Corps
The Global Health Corps (GHC)
, headed by Barbara Bush (President G.W. Bush’s daughter), seeks to strengthen the movement for global health equity and improve the quality of healthcare services for the poor by connecting outstanding young leaders with organizations working on the front lines in the fight for global health. In 2010, GHC and EGPAF partnered in Malawi, where two GHC fellows – one American and one Malawian – worked for one year assisting with monitoring and evaluation of programs. In 2011, GHC and EGPAF partnered in Malawi and Uganda, with two fellows in Malawi participating in monitoring and evaluation work, and two fellows in Uganda participating in maternal and child health work. This year, the partnership has expanded to include Zambia with fellows working on monitoring and evaluation.
