Global Health Community of Practice

About us

As a Community of Practice (CoP) we are a group of members who aim to enhance the successes in Global Health impact.

The CoP has been created with the goal of improving knowledge related to a Global Health. Our members learn from each other through the process of sharing information and experiences with the group.
