Global Health Fellows Program

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.



USAID has been at the forefront of the US Government response in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The Agency has programmed over $7 billion since inception of its international HIV/AIDS program in 1986. USAID is a key partner in the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest and most comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment program in the world.



The HIV Prevention Commodity Advisor (Technical Advisor) will serve as a member of the Cross-Sector Team within the Implementation Support (IS) Division of the Office of HIV/AIDS (OHA) in the Bureau for Global Health, and work as an integral part of OHA's Prevention Team. The Technical Advisor will work collaboratively to address product availability issues within and between technical teams and interest groups within OHA and in the Bureau for Global Health (GH). Key counterparts include OHA's Prevention, Care and Support teams, the Commodities Security and Logistics (CSL) Division of the Office of Population and Reproductive Health (PRH), and OHA's Supply Chain Management Team. S/he will also liaise with the Office of The Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) of the US Department of State and the relevant PEPFAR interagency Technical Working Groups. The Technical Advisor will receive day to day guidance from the Senior Social Marketing Advisor.
