Supporting Diversity and Global Engagement for Global Health & Human Thriving
CFHI is proud to have sent over 8000 students on global health internships around the world, and invested more than $100,000 on scholarships for CFHI's Global Health Scholars. We are determined to increase the number of students receiving scholarships to participate in our programs, so that we are able to nuture a diverse, ethical and passionate group of healthcare workers. And we need your support to make this possible.
This quote from our recent CFHI Global Health Scholar highlights the importance of our service learning programs for healthcare students and professionals:
" I had an amazing month-long global health experience in Quito with Child Family Health International. I witnessed some great medicine, took Spanish classes, immersed myself in the culture through a homestay, adventured across Ecuador, and made many lifelong friends. None of this would have been possible without the CFHI scholarship I was awarded. It was such a wonderful gift that allowed me to fulfill my dream of taking part in this program and experiencing global health firsthand. While any country will have differences in policy and operations I was surprised at just how similar clinic in Quito was when compared to my experiences in the US. In a way, it was a beautiful illustration of how universal the human condition is. No matter where you are from, what work you do, or how you identify, all humans face the same medical problems across the world. This is a simple and obvious truth that is surprisingly difficult to grasp until you experience it firsthand."
