Global Health Service Partnership

Addressing critical health care needs

The Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) helps address critical global shortages of health care professionals by sending physicians and nurses to work alongside local faculty to build institutional capacity and help strengthen the quality of medical education. 

GHSP Volunteers serve in Liberia, Malawi, Swaziland, Tanzania, and Uganda. Founded in 2012, GHSP is a collaboration of the Peace Corps, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and Seed Global Health. After five years of 228 GHSP Volunteer placements at 28 partner institutions, the program will be concluding in September 2018.

GHSP Volunteers serve for one year.
Applications for GHSP Volunteers are closed.

For health care professionals who are interested in serving, Peace Corps Response sends experienced professionals on short-term, specialized assignments for 12 months or less.

There is no greater reward than inspiring students through education and positive role-modeling. We never really know how far our influence might take someone, but it is nothing less than amazing to hear that your students are searching for advanced education to help affect health care in their country. This is exactly what the GHSP is about!
