Dubbed “the warm heart of Africa,” Malawi is a tiny but dynamic landlocked country in southeastern Africa where progress in health and development is afoot. A legacy of strong leadership on maternal health and the potential for huge impact in some of the country’s least developed areas make this a critical area for global health investment. Global Health Corps has proudly worked in Malawi since 2010, partnering with government agencies and organizations on the frontlines of the health equity movement to address a wide range of issues.

It’s a dynamic and exciting time to be part of the health equity movement in Malawi and Global Health Corps (GHC) seeking diverse young leaders and visionaries to step up. We are currently recruiting for our 2016-2017 class of fellows with a range of high impact roles in Malawi, including:
