Global Health e-Learning Center Provides Online Public Health Education

August 15, 2009

The Global Health e-Learning Center “developed by the USAID Bureau of Global Health is a response to repeated requests from field staff for access to technical public health information.” Although intended for these public health workers, the e-Learning Center is freely accessible online for anyone who completes a short registration process. Registered users can then work through a number (currently 31) of online courses in a self-directed manner – each includes an estimate of the time needed for completion, course objectives, quizzes for self-assessment of knowledge, final exams, and certificates for successful completion.

Available courses cover a number of women’s health-related topics such as family planning 101 and family planning counseling, hormonal methods of contraception, IUDs, mother-to-child transmission of HIV, postpartum care and family planning, female genital mutilation/cutting, as well as other global health issues, such as immunizations and various diarrheal and infectious diseases. I’ve started on the Family Planning 101 course, and have thus far found the content informative and challenging.

    I think that the most inquiries are about the USAID global e-learning website located at This website has many learning modules dedicated to helping any individual learn more about the most important topics in global/maternal/neonatal health and many more topics which are of interest to those living and working in developing countries and global health. You need an email address to get a free account and begin studying different topics. Good luck to all of you.
