PHI’s Global Health Fellows Program II (GHFP-II) and FACES for the Future Coalition (FACES) are making the global health workforce more representative of the American people. Research show that many backgrounds, perspectives, and skill sets remain underrepresented in global health. We also know that decisions about career paths are made long before one enters the workforce, often as early as high school.
In 2017, GHFP-II and FACES for the Future Coalition hosted the second ever Global Health Youth Summit. The Summit was an immersive, weeklong activity that exposed college-bound, high school students to global health as a potential career. Throughout the week, the students, who were predominantly from backgrounds underrepresented in global health, met with leaders from USAID, engaged in global health competency-building exercises, and learned about opportunities for youth to make an impact in global health.
