three steps on the global ideas journey
We recognise that global health challenges are complex, unpredictable, interdependent and often driven by factors outside the health sector. Therefore our programs draw participants from our diverse, interdisciplinary community and provide action oriented learning to build the capacity of our community to lead change:
- FORUM engages and inspires action on global health inequities. The program is shaped around five personas that capture the diverse spectrum of action that leads to global health impact. Participants leave with new knowledge of the range of global health issues and the ways we can act individually and collectively. Empowered to continue their educational journey with new networks to connect to opportunities and new tools to approach challenges systematically and creatively.
- LABS inspire and engage more deeply by providing more detailed analysis of a single issue in global health. A content expert leads highly interactive small group sessions aimed at translating and transferring the latest academic work into insights that change the way we live and work. We encourage shared peer-to-peer learning through reflection on various aspects of the action agenda including leadership, advocacy, collaboration and ethical deliberation.
- DESIGN JAMS provide problem-based experiential learning for global health action. Jams are highly facilitated immersion in the process of design to move beyond empathy, understanding and ideas into building and testing solutions that may be further developed and applied by our program partners. Our facilitators embed training in design thinking in the global health and development context to advance our understanding of both.
