Launch of the Global Health Academy

The Global Health Academy is part of GLOHRA, the German Alliance for Global Health Research, founded in 2020 and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). So far over 600 global health researchers from a wide range of disciplines are members of GLOHRA, including upwards of 60 early career researchers.

The Global Health Academy aims to support the next generation of global health researchers in Germany. It contributes to increasing the number and accessibility of sustainable, high-quality and high-relevance global health research trainings and opportunities in Germany. Furthermore, it aims to train and promote aspiring and early career researchers, particularly with regard to inter- and transdisciplinarity in research. The Global Health Academy invites you to celebrate its opening.
