A resource for USAID staff and partners around the world

The Global Health eLearning Center offers a menu of courses that learners can use to expand their knowledge in key public health areas, and to access important up-to-date technical information that USAID public health professionals should know.

A flexible learning program for busy professionals

Each course is authored by a subject matter expert or a team of experts, is highly focused, and can be completed in about one to two hours. Although courses are designed to be taken online, a printer-friendly format allows you to download course materials for further study.

A blend of technical and programmatic content

The courses combine technical content with program principles, best practices, and case studies. They are intended to provide concrete examples and to stimulate your thinking about ways you can use the principles you have learned in the course to solve problems in the field.
