The Initiative brings together a diverse group of global health education leaders from high, middle and low income countries to achieve three central goals:
- To construct the first universal global health education curriculum guidelines that would include recommendations regarding objectives, basic competencies, innovative methods of instruction and evaluation, including measures of impact that would be applicable regardless of the student’s country of origin or destination.
- To explore how global health education, with its emphasis on the culture of health and health care delivery, changes student knowledge, skills, attitudes and ultimately patient care behaviour.
- To plan a web-based, international cooperative, the central purpose of which will be to guide and monitor implementation of the model global health education universal curriculum guidelines in various high, middle and low income countries around the globe.
