GHSP Volunteer Opportunity


The Global Health Service Partnership, Seed Global Healthís flagship program with the Peace Corps and the US Presidentís Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), partners with countries in sub-Saharan Africa to tackle critical health care provider shortages by sending U.S. physicians and nurses to serve as volunteer educators and work alongside local faculty to educate and mentor the next generation of medical and nursing professionals.

The Global Health Service Partnership is accepting applications from Certified Nurse Midwives interested in serving as visiting faculty at nursing schools in Liberia, Malawi, Swaziland, Tanzania and Uganda. GHSP is an opportunity to make a lasting impact in strengthening health care delivery in resource-limited settings. By helping train the next generation of local midwives, GHSP Nurse Educators make a sustainable investment in improving health outcomes in areas with the greatest need.

Volunteers are deployed for one-year assignments each July. Nurse applicants must have a BSN and at least three years of clinical experience (advanced degrees and specialized board certification are preferred). All applicants must be U.S. citizens and have an active U.S. nursing license.

GHSP is a Peace Corps Response program, which offers high-impact assignments for qualified professionals. Benefits for volunteers include transportation to and from country of service, monthly living stipends, housing, comprehensive medical care, a readjustment allowance, and paid vacation days. Seed Global Health offers debt repayment awards of up to $30,000 for qualified volunteers.

Applications close November 25, 2016 for July 2017 departure. To apply, go to:
