The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) announced the 2023 recipients of its three fellowship programs: the Harvard Global Health Institute Climate and Health Burke Fellowship supports scholarly research at the important intersection of climate change and global health, an up-and-coming, transdisciplinary area of study; the Harvard Global Health Institute Burke Global Health Fellowship provides funding for Harvard junior faculty members to pursue innovative research and curriculum development in global health, enabling them to focus on their research and helps to catalyze their careers; and the Harvard LEAD Fellowship offers leadership development and mentorship support for emerging women leaders from low- and middle-income countries.

The HGHI fellowship programs offer valuable opportunities for global health leaders to advance their careers, receive expert mentorship, and connect with Harvard’s diverse community of health professionals. The fellows were chosen based on the quality of their previous work, proposed fellowship projects, and demonstrated commitment to promoting health equity and justice.

“HGHI fellows are emerging leaders in global health practice, education, and research who have committed themselves to driving innovative solutions to some of the most urgent threats to health worldwide,” said HGHI Faculty Director Louise Ivers, who is also the executive director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Global Health, the David Bangsberg Endowed Chair in Global Health Equity at MGH and a professor of medicine and professor of global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School. “We are grateful to work closely with this highly accomplished group to advance our mission of addressing the most pressing threats to health equity worldwide through research, policy, education, and partnership.”
