Global health is a particularly complex sector within development, consisting of many different technical areas and programs. This can make it difficult for global health professionals to figure out which position will best suit their skills and talents and allow them to fulfil their career ambitions.

Dr. Elvira Beracochea, president and chief executive officer of Realizing Global Health, joins Devex for this exclusive webinar to discuss the different paths to a career in global health. She explains how an effective career development plan can help you get there: “You need to understand that global health is a very complex field. There are hundreds of donors, government agencies, private foundations, thousands of NGOs, and consulting companies.”
