The Partners in Health Global Learning Collaborative and the Socios En Salud Center for Global Health are thrilled to announce the launch of our new free course, “An Exploration of Decolonizing Global Health Education”. This course explores the deep inequities in global health education, their origins, and strategies being used in both high-income countries, and middle- and low-income countries to decolonize global health education. The content of this course does not represent the position or views of the organizing institutions. Rather, an open platform to learn and explore strategies to advance the movement toward decolonizing global health education.
The course features five lessons
- Introduction and important course information
- Why decolonize global health
- How low- and middle-income countries are decolonizing global health education
- How high-income countries are decolonizing global health education
It includes excerpts from a series of interviews with global health experts and practitioners, including an OBGYN in Liberia, a University Dean in Rwanda and a midwife in Peru.
