Huffington Post: A Partnership for the Future of Global Health
Carrie Hessler-Radelet, director of the Peace Corps
“…In a unique public-private partnership, the Peace Corps, Seed Global Health, and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) worked together to launch the Global Heath Service Partnership, (GHSP) where experienced American doctors and nurses volunteer, through the Peace Corps Response program, to train health care workers in countries with critical shortages. … We are thrilled that at the White House’s World AIDS Day event, Secretary of State John Kerry announced the expansion of the GHSP, with additional resources and a new commitment to improve clinical education, expand the base of physician and nursing educators and build health care capacity in countries that face critical shortages. … This expansion of the Global Health Service Partnership will make a long-term difference as we strive to reach our goal of an AIDS-free generation” (12/2).
