TUFH Global Fellowships

Background:
The Network Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) community unites global health leaders, capturing their passion and commitment for global equitable health. TUFH is a membership organization that brings together diversity of thought, experience, and technical/financial resources, so TUFH members can challenge the status quo, push boundaries, learn with and from each others, launch vibrant health initiatives, and share best practices and learnings on a local, regional, and global scale. The TUFH community is an interprofessional, multicultural, and global hub on social accountability. TUFH is open to all institutions and individuals who have a passion for global equitable health.


TUFH Global Fellowships:
TUFH has created a Global Fellowship Program to help promote its mission uniting global health leaders and their organizations, capturing their passion and commitment to global equitable health. TUFH Global Fellowships are a learning lab, which may include travel to one or more countries, where organizations and their leaders can connect, learn from each other, exchange ideas and best practices and collaborate on a global scale.

TUFH partners with organizations and/or individuals who want to connect with and learn from similar organizations and leaders across the globe. Through a consultative design, TUFH works with organizations and/or individuals to develop a customized program through which Fellows can meet with other leaders in their field and sector, as well as with political, business, and cultural leaders. Specifically, TUFH will coordinates meetings with leaders and experts in their respective fields in regions of the world of interest to the participants.

1) Social Accountability
