The Global Heath Competencies Toolkit (Second 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 2nd edition is the addition of annotated bibliographies, which provides a further explanation of the focus of a particular resource, all competencies peer-reviewed and placed in a “user-friendly” platform.
