The Global Heath Competencies Toolkit (Third Edition) defines competencies across a series of domains and includes the competency, teaching strategies, and accompanying resources (websites, articles, reports, books, and study questions) that provides curricular content to support the competencies for proficiency / trainee levels. New to the 3rd edition are three additional competencies as well as an update to the majority of the other eleven resources found in the tool kit. Institutionalization and Sustainable Development, Planetary Health, and Decolonizing Global Health are included in this edition as well as the addition of disability resources.
