The APPD Pediatric Global Health Educators Learning Community’s mission is to work collaboratively with pediatric faculty in the US and abroad to advance the science and implementation of global health education for pediatric trainees, to prepare them to better serve children in resource-limited settings locally and globally.
Our vision is for high-quality global health education in all pediatric training programs.
Our work is undertaken through active work-groups, regional consortiums, and frequently in collaboration with other global health or pediatric organizations.
We develop and disseminate shared resources for curriculum and implementation, organize faculty and professional development opportunities, undertake projects in research and program evaluation, and advocate for global health education in pediatrics.
