This year GHSP will be expanding to two new countries, Liberia and Swaziland, where GHSP Faculty will be deployed across five medical and nursing institutions. The program will also expand to two new sites in Malawi. With the addition of these institutions, faculty will be placed at 21different sites, a 50 percent increase since 2015.

The increased number of GHSP Educators and the expansion to new sites will broaden the impact of the program, strengthen medical and nursing education, build the number of qualified health professionals and ultimately, expand access to quality health care for communities across Africa.
