The Oakland-based Public Health Institute will receive $209.5 million in "cooperative agreement" funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee announced Friday.

The award, nearly twice as large as previous USAID agreements, will go to support the Public Health Institute's role in the Global Health Fellows Program.

The Global Health Fellows Program recruits and trains health professionals for placement in Washington, D.C. and abroad to strengthen USAID's public health outreach.
