In global health education and training, RGHI partners contribute to urgently needed innovations. As one network participant, Prof. Hubert Endtz, put it in his 2009 inaugural lecture: ‘Various new international ventures explore and initiate research and aim to train a new generation to collaborate across international boundaries in the health sciences. Mono-disciplinary or oligodisciplinary stay-at-home research is gradually being replaced by cross-disciplinary, international research and training in other parts of the world.’ Besides innovating existing MA and PhD programs, through various long-distance PhD schemes, the RGHI education team explores new models of education, e-learning and serious games, train-the-trainer concepts, and local capacity building forms. RGHI contributes to strengthening educational programs and institutions in Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malawi, Suriname, Tanzania, Zambia.
The new global health BA programs will be uploaded shortly.

Education Innovation ‘Labs’
RGHI is engaged in developing new forms of collaboration in education, and involved in a number of health E-learning initiatives (with ISS, RSM, OBR and with a select number of global health centers in LMICs). We aim to create academic experimental zones (‘laboratories’) for innovation in global health education, together with our RAS coalition for Serious Games in Global Health and Creative Learning.
Teach the teacher
RGHI participants are engaged in several Teach the Teacher trainings in select areas of expertise, such as with Sina Health in the pan-African PBF flagship course in Mombasa, Kenya.
RGHI partners are engaged in technical assistance in international curriculum development.
