Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University offers a two-year MPP program designed to prepare future public leaders for successful careers in public service.
GHD disseminates this knowledge through scholarly publications, educational opportunities, and online communities of practice on GHDonline. GHD aims to train current and future leaders in health care delivery.
GHD has developed more than 30 Harvard Business School-style teaching cases with accompanying guides for instructors that form the foundation for a range of health care delivery courses.
Cases capture real-life scenarios and explore how leaders implement value-based principles. Innew cases on universal health care and nutrition policy debuted at the Ministerial Leadership in Health program, a joint initiative of Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Kennedy School.
Cases and their corresponding teaching notes, topical concept notes, a glossary, and an in-depth curriculum guide for instructors are available at no cost online through Harvard Business Publishing. Cases are also available for download directly at GHDonline.
GHD uses mixed-methods research techniques—including the creation of research case studies—to explore the impact of global health initiatives on national health systems with commissions from the World Health Organization and UNAIDS. GHD has developed strategic frameworks to guide program managers in resource-limited settings in maximizing program value, defined as patient outcomes per dollar spent.
In JulyGHD welcomed ten faculty members from nine countries for an inaugural training workshop. The network now includes over twenty members from fifteen countries.
There is no cost to join. Thirteen public and more than 80 private communities focus on global health issues and diseases; several private forums support working groups for various organizations and projects.
GHDonline hosts one week virtual conferences open to the public that convene thought leaders around a specific, cross-community topic and publishes peer-reviewed Discussion Briefs—two-page summaries of the most active and rich discussions.
Select journal article summaries are also available on GHDonline via a partnership with JournalWatch.
