About the organization

The Georgetown University Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI) serves countries to improve their population health and well-being and to safeguard against health-related threats by advancing the use of evidence and human-centered enterprise architecture on the path towards achieving equity and social justice. To achieve this mission, we catalyze the uptake, spread, and implementation of innovations; triangulate data from different sources, and tailor visualization of the information for each audience; design and implement integrated service delivery models; support communities of practice to inform policy and practice through efficient data use and horizontal and vertical collaboration; disseminate best practices and evidence globally through open source learning networks; build global, collaborative, multi-disciplinary, and interprofessional networks; undertake research informed by local needs; and invest in local leadership to own and sustain interventions.


The Team Lead for Business Development develops strategies to secure a pipeline of funding focusing on cutting edge issues or developments in the fields of health science delivery support, health informatics and data science, health work force development, global health security, health care policy and financing, health governance, leadership, and management, and implementation science and health services research for the Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI), based at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC). The three critical areas of action are new business development, new program design, and new program start up.
