GHEARD: Global Health Education for Equity, Anti-Racism and Decolonization

Available: 07/01/2023-06/30/2026

GHEARD is Global Health Education for Equity, Anti-Racism and Decolonization. It is a modular curriculum for global health trainees and providers that is being published by the American Academy of Pediatrics with collaboration from the Association of Pediatric Program Directors and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health. It was created by a diverse, large author group with representatives across the education spectrum and around the world.

Learning Objectives

​GHEARD seeks to prompt critical reflection and analysis and create important (and sometimes uncomfortable) conversations across global health training spaces around inequity, racism, systems of oppression and structural violence, and the legacies of colonialism and neo-colonialism on the field by highlighting unHEARD and under-represented voices and perspectives in global health. The hope is that by informing and empowering global health trainees and providers about the complex history of the field, ongoing global health inequities, and critical consciousness of one’s own power and positionality, that they will be empowered to join together to work toward a more equitable, decolonized field of global health. The ultimate goal is to center the voices of our expert colleagues in resource-constrained communities and to empower global health trainees and providers from resource-wealthy settings to work alongside their expert partners to reimagine and work toward a world where all children and their families have access to the health care and basic services they need to thrive.
