The GHES Program supports one-year research training of post and predoctoral fellows at 12 partnering international institutions. The goal of the program is to generate a new and young cadre of global health researchers, educators and professionals from diverse disciplines to address health needs and promote social equity. A major focus of the program is the health challenges which have emerged due to the rapid growth of slum settlements in both urban and rural settings of low and middle-income countries. The program supports implementation research focused on providing accessible and high quality health care services at all levels in resource-limited settings.
