Each year, Pro Bono Week provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the outstanding work of business professionals who have volunteered their professional expertise to impact organizations around the world. In celebration of #PBW16, we share highlights from a week in the life of a pro bono consultant.

Checkout highlights here from the final week of the Global Health Corporate Champions, a dynamic group of eight professionals that spent four weeks working to improve the quality of public health in Accra, Ghana this past June. The initiative engaged employees from The Dow Chemical CompanyPIMCO, and PwC to contribute their expertise to improve the operational strategy of three social sector health organizations. Drawing from their collective knowledge in management, product sustainability, operations, and finance, the GHCC participants focused on projects designed to increase access to quality healthcare for communities throughout the region.

The Global Health Corporate Champions is an activity of the USAID Global Health Fellows Program II, which is implemented by the Public Health Institute and supported by PYXERA Global. The program addresses immediate and emerging human capital needs in the global health sphere.
