Who We Are

Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) is a five-year project of the Public Health Institute, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). STAR’s overall goal is to strengthen the capacity of global health professionals, organizations, and companies so they can implement stronger programs, achieve better results, and make a bigger impact in the global health field.

STAR has four key components:

  • A Fellowship and Internship program with tailored individual learning and growth opportunities
  • Capacity-building for Fellowship/Internship host organizations
  • Academic partnerships between U.S. and low- and middle-income country institutions
  • Tailored learning and mentorship opportunities for corporate and foundation partners

Through a continuous focus on individual and institutional learning, STAR is amplifying the impact that professionals and organizations can make on global health practice.

  • Individual Learning: Each participant has a dedicated team of Learning and Performance Management specialists who help ensure a successful, productive experience. They help Fellows and Interns to develop individualized learning and career plans based on their job responsibilities, their passions, and their long-term aspirations in global health.
  • Institutional Learning: STAR pairs academic institutions from different countries in knowledge-sharing experiments. They collaborate towards solutions to global health challenges and generate new knowledge, translating it into learning resources that are accessible to practitioners around the world.
Fellowships and Internships

STAR provides a unique opportunity for individuals to gain skills and experience in global health through fellowship and internship placements in a variety of settings. Through fellowship and internship placements professionals will:

  • Gain hands-on experience in global health
  • Enhance knowledge and skill through individualized learning
  • Build a powerful global network
