This morning The Global Health Service Corps (www.globalhealthservicecorps.org) announced the launch of a partnership with the Peace Corps and PEPFAR. Beginning in Tanzania, Malawi and Uganda in July 2013, MD and RN participants will serve as medical educators in the Peace Corps Response program through the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP).

This thrills me! Malawi and Uganda are very dear to me for a few reasons, and I have wanted to hear about something like this for some time. I am headed to Malawi August 2012 for my dissertation research on the well-being of child-heads of sibling households who receive services from a faith-based NGO. While there, I will re-group with friends in an HIV support group. In Uganda, we have been involved with our friends there in increasing health services for a small village, and we visited there during the adoption of my HIV+ grandson. This year we are getting another 1-2 children from the same orphanage, who were his crib mates, assuming all goes well. You never know. So my interests in health care in HIV-endemic sub-Saharan Africa has very personal ties. Makes for a lot of passionate work. Thank you so much for this link and this news. What a great opportunity.

This program will be great and it is exciting that this as well as the Rwandan MOH nursing will provide great opportunities to strengthen global nursing communities.

As someone who spent the last 9 months looking for a long-term faculty/practice position in a developing nation, it's wonderful to see these opportunities launching. I've secured a great position in Rwanda, not with the MoH/Clinton Healthcare Access Initiative, and I am very excited that so many of my talented, like-minded colleagues are building resources and presence in these communities. Thanks to Anne Sliney, Pat Daoust, and others who have done such a tremendous job providing nursing leadership in these important projects.
