USAID evidently offers a number of short online courses on global health, including quite a few related to PEPFAR. I just registered but haven’t tried these out yet — if you have, please let me know what you think in the comments. They’re available at www.globalhealthlearning.org.

From an email:

We are pleased to announce the launch of six new eLearning courses on the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Global Health eLearning Center (www.globalhealthlearning.org):

  • Healthy Businesses: Familiarizes learners with strategies to design and deliver activities to ensure that commercial for-profit health care providers have the business, operational, and financial capacity to sustainably provide essential health services.
  • Male Circumcision: Policy and Programming: Provides learners with an overview of scientific evidence of male circumcision’s (MC’s) protective effect against HIV transmission, the acceptability and safety of MC, challenges to MC program implementation, and policy and program guidance.

PEPFAR-related eLearning courses:

  • Data Use for Program Managers: Provides learners with a systematic approach to planning for the use of data, specifically within the field of HIV/AIDS.
  • Economic Evaluation Basics: Gives learners a basic understanding of the common methods used to conduct an economic evaluation and the role of economic evaluations in policy and program decision-making in the field of international public health.
  • Geographic Approaches to Global Health: Acquaints learners with spatial data and the use of such data to enhance the decision-making process for health program implementation in limited resource settings.
  • PEPFAR Next Generation Indicators Guidance: Allows learners to gain a better understanding about the newest version of the NGI Reference Guide and how the information contained in the guide can be used to report progress of PEPFAR programs within national monitoring and evaluation frameworks.

Thank you very much for your interest in and support of the Global Health eLearning Center!
