Global Health Curriculum Toolkit

A working group of Pediatric Global Health Educators has put together has put together a great collection of resources for people interested in global health curricula focusing on children's health. You can use these materials for your own program. If you use any or part of the materials from any of the organizations listed below please notify the contact person as a courtesy to let them know of your intentions.

These extensive resources have been put together through a lot of hard work by many individuals and they would definitely appreciate hearing from you!
