Since 2014, the FACES Coalition has been partnering with the Global Health Fellows Program-II to encourage and prepare diverse high school students for entry into global health careers. This effort, also in partnership with GlobeMed, strives to develop a system-wide approach that supports young people through the educational trajectory, starting at high school and culminating at the professional level into a global health career. Building the next generation of diverse global health professionals is a complex goal which serves a greater public purpose for the US Agency for International Development’s Global Health Bureau. Increasing diversity in USAID/GH creates a workforce that is adaptable, resilient, culturally competent and better able to respond to complex global health challenges.
