CUGH Webinar: Interprofessional Global Health Competencies - Exploring Consensus and Controversies

We explored this topic together in a webinar in February 2016. You asked for its return and we brought it back.

What student development are we aiming for in global health education? How do we assess learner growth that requires demonstration, consistency, and varying contexts? What controversies exist in global health competencies that every educator should be aware of?

Webinar: Global Health and Law

For many global health practitioners, the link between the law and global health is not clear. However, upon closer look, much of the framework for how global health is conceived and practiced is grounded in the laws, regulations and guidance that emanate from global organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the United Nations. Human rights laws that create the right to health, regulations that come into play during a pandemic, international guidance relating to breast milk substitutes, international pharmaceutical regulation, etc.
