Who can apply?

There will be two tracks for which participants can apply to be an EV 2018. While one track
is reserved for researchers involved in health policy and systems research, the other track
seeks to attract health professionals, activists, decision or policy-makers and/or other
health systems actors.
All applicants must have been born on or after 1 January 1978

 

Can I apply for both the tracks?

No! You need to choose only one track that best suits your profile

 

Who is eligible for track – 2?

Applicants must fulfil one of the following:

  • Be involved in a decision-making, implementation or practitioner role within health services or systems
  • Be a passionate voice for strengthening health systems within their local/national health systems in the role of activists, health journalists or patient advocates or otherwise involved in advancing health equity and social justice in their regions.

 

What should my application focus on?

For both tracks, special consideration will be given to people who explicitly include the political dimension of health systems and services in their work, and challenge power in whatever form, based on good evidence.

 

I am from a high-income country, am I still eligible to apply?

Yes! EV4GH is open to all. Focus will be on applicants from the Global South especially LMICs, but candidates from the global north can also apply (they need to have relevant field experience in the global South, though, and work on health policy & systems research in the South)

 

I have just enrolled for a PhD, am I still eligible to apply?

Yes! Please refer to question 6 and if you fulfil at least 2 of the points mentioned there you are eligible to apply

 

What is covered in the scholarship?

In case of a full scholarship the travel, accommodation and living expenses for the duration of the course is covered and participation in the Health systems global symposia from the 8 – 12 October will be covered.

Throughout the capacity-building process there are feedback loops for monitoring, tool kit adaptation and improvements, as well as suggested approaches to ensure integration of knowledge translation and uptake of results.

MODULES

The training will be delivered through lectures, plenary discussion, group discussion and problem analysis which focus on a series of modules:

  • Introduction to IR
  • Contextualizing IR issues

e-Learning Course in Health Financing: First Batch Launched

e-Learning Course in Health Financing: First Batch Launched

The e-learning course in health financing was conceptualised by Dr. N. Devadasan. He has a rich experience in the field and has been teaching this subject in many universities. Keeping in mind the current public health scenario, where the competency in health financing is an important asset for the professionals and policy makers, the course was designed to bridge the knowledge gap in the field and strengthen the capacity of professionals in health financing.

 

eHF-firstbatch-compressed

 

The first batch of e-learning course in health financing was launched in April this year. From hundreds of applications, we shortlisted 28 applicants for enrollment in the course. We have a mix of academicians, researchers, government and non-government professionals in our current batch. The batch has representation from National Health Mission (NHM), ESI,etc. There are participants from UNICEF and NGOs like ACCESS Health International, HSRII,SAMA, MYRADA, PHFI and other organisations like International union against tuberculosis and lung diseases. We also have participants from academic institutions like Puducherry Institute of Medical Sciences and IIHMR. Through our e-learning course we have reached participants across the country from Rajasthan in west to Odisha in east, Delhi in north to Kerala to south.

The course consists of four modules, each module has three units and each unit has three to four classrooms that are powerpoint presentations with audio and video recordings. Classrooms also have corresponding exercises to test the knowledge of participants. We have some interesting learning activities in the course for making the learning more practical and keeping the participants motivated. Each module has an activity called ‘From the field’. In this section, we interview the key people from the field and bring their stories to participants. Another engaging feature is ‘Crossword Puzzle’, where after each module participants can unlock a level  and get clues to solve the puzzle. Another interactive feature is ‘FAQs’, where in the Subject Matter Expert (SME) answers the queries of participants in the form of video than just typing on the discussion forum.

We are systematically tracking the progress of our participants and give feedback whenever needed. We hope that the course will be a success and we will be running several batches  of the course in the near future.

Training Team Members at IPH Attended Eighth Annual LINQED Workshop in Uganda

Training Team Members at IPH Attended Eighth Annual LINQED Workshop in Uganda

Uganda-linqed-workshop.png.001

 

Diljith Kannan, training coordinator and Dr.Aneesha Ahluwalia, tutor for e-learning courses attended the eighth annual workshop of the LINQED educational network. The workshop was organised at the Uganda Martyrs University (Faculty of Health Sciences), Kampala, Uganda from 17th till 20th May 2016.

 

Started in 2008, LINQED refers to Learning together on quality in education in international health, working on quality in education and linking up people. It is a network of educational and government institutions providing postgraduate level training in human and animal tropical medicine, public health and international health.

LINQED organises annual workshops that focus on pedagogy, quality assurance and e-learning. The theme for this year was ‘Improving education leadership and research, cooperative learning and critical thinking in higher education’.

 

The focus areas of the workshop:

  • Cooperative learning
  • Critical thinking
  • Educational research
  • Education leadership

 

The workshop was a good networking platform, where the members got an opportunity to interact with participants from various countries and share their experiences. Diljith Kannan  presented about quality assurance and IPH experience with e-learning.  The workshop helped IPH members gain new perspectives about the learning activities and education research. It  was like a stepping stone towards introducing new learning activities in their e-learning courses.  The workshop was also promising in terms of providing us support for research in the field of e-learning.
