Seed Global Health (Seed) brings rich experience and knowledge of medical and nursing education in resource limited settings. We provide expertise in site selection and applicant recruitment in addition to coordinating orientation and training, field support, monitoring and evaluation, and debt repayment stipends.
The Global Health Service Partnership is a public-private collaboration between Seed Global Health, GHSP, and the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Established in 2012, the Partnership is a novel federal program addressing vast shortages of health professionals in many parts of the world.
The Partnership is committed to help increase clinical care capacity and strengthen health systems in resource-limited settings by cultivating the next generation of local doctors and nurses. The program places US health professionals alongside local medical and nursing faculty counterparts to meet the teaching needs identified at each partner institution.
In the launch year of 2012-2013, the GHSP piloted the program by placing 30 health professionals in training institutions in each of three partner countries: Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. The physician volunteers are board eligible or board certified and nursing volunteers have at least a BSN with a minimum of 3 years of clinical experience. GHSP plans to scale up deployment to additional countries and disciplines in subsequent years. For the 2014-2015 program, 42 GHSP volunteers are working at 13 sites in Malawi, Tanzania, and Uganda.
