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.


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.

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.
