Global Health eLearning Center

The Global Health eLearning Center developed by the USAID Bureau of Global Health is a response to repeated requests from field staff for access to technical public health information. We have heard from USAID Population, Health, and Nutrition officers (PHNs) and from Foreign Service Nationals (FSNs) that they want to be current on global health topics, yet find it a challenge to obtain the information because of logistical and time constraints. The Global Health eLearning Center provides Internet-based courses that:

  • Provide useful and timely continuing education for health professionals
  • Offer state-of-the-art technical content on key public health topics
  • Serve as a practical resource for increasing public health knowledge
