Education & Training

Africa as a region bears more than 24% of the global burden of disease but has access to only 3% of the world’s health workers and less than 1% of the world’s financial resources.

We address this critical shortage of healthcare workers by investing in a sustainable training model for frontline workers. Education is a component of every Global Strategies project. As we provide services to meet immediate healthcare needs, we invest in the education of local healthcare providers to achieve sustainable improvements in health for the community. We work alongside field partners to identify critical needs and develop innovative methods to address them.

Global Strategies education activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Scholarships
  • Supporting attendance at research conferences and continuing education training
  • Annual training of frontline healthcare workers
  • A suite of educational materials including interactive case-based curriculum and video learning

We have challenges with the PEP project with the availability of the kits in some zones. Our success in 10 regions show a real need. So, our first challenge is how to cover the regions that we currently cannot reach.
