GLOBAL HEALTH TECHNICAL PROFESSIONALS (GHTP)
Who We Are
The Global Health Technical Professionals (GHTP) program works with USAID to improve global health, international development, and humanitarian assistance outcomes in communities around the world by providing technical expertise to support current USAID programs. We are engaging and building a new generation of global health Technical Professionals who reflect the diversity of the American people and who work on the frontlines of the most significant and dynamic global health challenges of our time.
Diversity and inclusion underscore our support of Technical Professionals, USAID, and the global health field. We advocate for inclusion in the field by partnering with Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) and other organizations to provide global health career resources and options for historically underrepresented groups. In support of these efforts, we also provide the Future Global Health Leaders Program, which provides a toolkit, quarterly webinars, and office hours to a diverse group of students around the country.
We also recognize the importance of continuous professional and career development for the next generation of global health Technical Professionals. We provide tailored resources, information, and opportunities throughout our Technical Professionals’ tenure at USAID under the GHTP contract, including an annual professional development stipend, performance management and career development support, and mentorship opportunities.
GHTP’s domestic positions are based in Washington, D.C. at USAID’s Headquarters and USAID partner organizations. International placements are primarily at USAID Missions, but can include assignment at various ministries of health, NGOs, and USAID partner country offices.
All Technical Professional positions supporting USAID under the GHTP mechanism are employed by either Credence Management Solutions, LLC (Credence) or its partner, the Public Health Institute (PHI). Our early- to mid-career Technical Professionals have varying public health, global health, or other relevant experience and are either US Citizens or US Permanent Residents.
