Challenge

A comprehensive approach will be used that begins with disease but proceeds to root causes (i.e. water and sanitation, food, education, poverty, etc.) to address major problems of the sick poor throughout the world. The idea is that there is a "know-do" gap in global health. Training and service delivery are the bottlenecks now, not knowledge. Therefore, education and networking will lead to improvements in the delivery of global health care and more lives saved.

Solution

Each year, over 150 health professionals from poor countries will attend two week global health "boot camps" and be supported by a long-term communications and technical assistance network after they return home.

Long-Term Impact

PIH intends to create a collaborative alumni network and new cadre of global health leaders capable of drawing on expanding knowledge. Young doctors can be matched with developing world leaders and travel with them to their home countires.
