Global Health – Building Country Capacity

February 25, 2015 - March 1, 2015

This project is promoting international cooperation on the common challenges facing the global community in preventing, treating, and managing health problems affecting general populations, such as infectious diseases, cancer, stroke, heart disease, diabetes and HIV-related illnesses.  A diverse group of healthcare professionals from Guinea, Iraq, Nigeria, Palestinian Territories, Panama, Saudi Arabia, Republic of South Sudan, Uganda and Yemen will be convening in Cleveland.


International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields.  Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.  

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Ryan Ouellette, International Visitors Program Officer, at or click here.  To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here
