Four new PEPFAR eLearning courses are available on the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Global Health eLearning Center (http://www.globalhealthlearning.org/):
Data Use for Program Managers: Provides learners with a systematic approach to planning for the use of data, specifically within the field of HIV/AIDS.
Economic Evaluation Basics: Gives learners a basic understanding of the common methods used to conduct an economic evaluation and the role of economic evaluations in policy and program decision-making in the field of international public health.
Geographic Approaches to Global Health: Acquaints learners with spatial data and the use of such data to enhance the decision-making process for health program implementation in limited resource settings.
PEPFAR Next Generation Indicators Guidance: Allows learners to gain a better understanding about the newest version of the NGI Reference Guide and how the information contained in the guide can be used to report progress of PEPFAR programs within national monitoring and evaluation frameworks.
In response to the growing demand for timely technical and programmatic information, USAID, OGAC, CDC, and other PEPFAR agencies and implementing partners joined together to develop these courses.
All courses are free, can be completed at your own pace and convenience, and are accessible anywhere an internet connection is available. One-time registration at www.globalhealthlearning.org will give you free access to the courses, as well as more than 40 other courses on a variety of global health topics. Look for additional PEPFAR eLearning courses in the future.
