The PHI/CDC Global Health Fellowship Program supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) role as a leader in the response to emerging global public health needs and challenges by offering competent and well-educated early career professionals training opportunities working on the front lines of global health. PHI and CDC’s Center for Global Health work in conjunction with CDC offices around the world to develop, fund, and implement the PHI/CDC Global Health Fellowship Program, and to place fellows in CDC host offices in Atlanta, Washington DC, or overseas in one of the CDC’s 60+ locations.
The CDC is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish this mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.
