High School “Global Health Diplomats” program

There is a need to raise the awareness of global health issues within the general community. There is also a need to inform young people about the field, the challenges and the opportunities that exist in this exciting and evolving field. An integrated outreach and awareness building campaign should include a partnership with high schools through which interested and talented individuals are exposed to the field of global health both here and abroad. Being designated a “Global Health Diplomat” would open opportunities of exposure and engagement with working professionals under direct mentorship.
