PHI’s Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) strengthens the capacity of global health professionals, organizations, and companies so they can implement stronger programs, achieve better results, and make a bigger impact in the global health field. By building unique partnerships with diverse stakeholders—with Ministries of Health, private sector companies, NGOs, and academic institutions—STAR is building a powerful network of multidisciplinary, multinational, and multicultural global health professionals, ready to meet complex global health challenges.

STAR’s Fellowship and Internship program creates opportunities for tailored individual learning and growth opportunities, allowing their Fellows and Interns to participate in customized and curated learning activities that enhance knowledge and skills, expand professional networks, and support career development. In 2020, STAR placed Fellows and Interns in 23 countries globally: including, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burma, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Philippines, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Zambia. A study of STAR fellows found that 100% of Fellows were likely to recommend STAR to colleagues, and 91% of Fellows agree they gained knowledge for their roles.

STAR is a five-year project of the Public Health Institute, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and implemented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University, University of California, San Francisco, and Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
