Global Health Education and Capacity Building

Education and capacity building are at the heart of what we do at the Global Health Impact Hub.

Collectively, we have been responsible for the education of over 10,000 students in more than 150 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), including formal PhD and Masters degrees as well as informal and experiential capacity building among researchers and research support staff within our research programmes. Our own students and staff benefit from multidirectional learning whilst working alongside our LMIC partners.
