We’re planning to relaunch our website with a new design to enhance your experience with the Global Health Gateway. Our volunteers have worked tirelessly to create a new website design for you but need $5,000 by Friday 26 September 2014 to launch the site.
This new site will allow you to connect and share with the world of global health, including a new inspirational blog! Help us to help you!
Launched in 2010, the Global Health Gateway website facilitates access to global health vocational and training opportunities. It provides a place for individuals from diverse backgrounds passionate about global health to be connected to educational, training, employment and volunteering opportunities and events in global health, and lots of personal stories that you simply can’t learn from a textbook.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.
From all of us at Global Health Gateway.

GHG: Tell us about yourself
I grew up in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne with my parents and siblings. With an older brother and younger sister, people often jokingly ask if I have the famed middle child syndrome. To be honest, I’ve never really given in much thought. What I do have is a passion for meeting new people and exploring new cultures, a determination to make a difference in whatever way I can, and an independence and stubbornness which means that once I set my mind to something, I am not easily deterred.
I remember sitting in Health and Human Development in year eleven. I was reading about the Millennium Development Goals and thought to myself, that’s what I want to do; I want to help people to have the opportunity to decide what they want to be when they grow up. So began my interest in global health and my journey to where I am now.
