Emerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH) is an innovative multi-partner blended training program that includes face-to-face training and virtual training components, for young, promising and emerging health policy & systems researchers, decision-makers and other health system professionals with an interest in becoming influential global health voices and/or local change makers, particularly in LMIC. Four previous EV4GH editions have been organized, all linked to an international or regional global health event.
In 2016, continuing with the tradition of partnering with a significant health systems research symposium, there will be a new edition of EV4GH in close association and partnership with the 4th Global Symposium on health systems research (Vancouver symposium), organised by Health Systems Global. The theme for the Vancouver symposium is ‘Resilient and responsive Health Systems for a changing world’. The symposium will take place from 14-18 November, 2016 at Vancouver.
Institute of Public Health (IPH) India was recently announced as the new secretariat of EV4GH (2015-16). EV4GH has a globally representative governance structure comprised of members from all the regions. IPH faculty, Dr. Prashanth N S has taken over as the chairperson of the governance board with eight other young researchers, representing East/South African region, Western Pacific region, West/Central African region, European region, Eastern Mediterranean region and Region of the Americas.
In addition to the previous list of partnered institutions – Institute of Tropical medicine Antwerp (ITM-A), University of Cape Town (UCT), Peking University, University of Western Cape (UWC), we welcome Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) this year as a new partner institution to the event.
We foresee a new and vibrant bunch of researchers, implementers and other health system actors to be selected in this edition to participate and constructively engage and challenge the global health discussions at the symposium.
Spread the word and share the call with researchers, institutions and other global and local platforms.
