Help 28 Community Health Practioners Save Lives



GHC provides conference scholarships to 28 community healthcare practitioners from developing countries to build skills, share best practices with other conference attendees, and transfer knowledge.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Community healthcare practitioners in developing countries are frequently challenged by lack of resources including a shortage of doctors, nurses, and other health care workers, hospitals, clinics, overall funding, training, and access to medicines.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Global Health Council will work through its Annual International Conference on Global Health to help 28 community healthcare practitioners develop skills to be more effective at delivering healthcare in developing countries.

Potential Long Term Impact

The 28 community healthcare practitioners will develop skills to better use research, media and partnerships, develop leadership and management skills, and better use existing resources and connections to help ensure healthy communities.
