Reimagining Global Health Learning in Three Models

The Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) initiative offers companies and foundations the opportunity to improve the knowledge and skills of their employees while helping build sustainable solutions in global health. STAR is the only global health learning program that combines a robust individualized curriculum, bi-directional mentoring, and placement opportunities at USAID, USAID Missions, Ministries of Health, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and academic institutions in both the U.S. and in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

360-Degree Support

For STAR corporate and foundation partners, PHI provides full service, starting with co-creating the optimal program that meets their needs. A STAR relationship manager and expert team help in partnership design, creating a robust learning curriculum and program for employees, unique opportunities for loaned executives, and innovation collaborations, guidance and implementation, and impact reporting.

For participants, PHI can handle all outreach and onboarding, the design of tailored learning programs, and end-to-end management services to support individuals throughout the program, including orientation, re-entry, and monitoring and evaluation. Established in 1964 as an independent nonprofit, PHI has more than 50 years of experience in designing and implementing large-scale global health capacity-building programs worldwide. More than 2,300 fellows have participated in PHI-led programs. PHI supports more than 600 staff in 80 programs and works in 26 countries around the world.
