2020 Emerging Voices for Global Health is Now Open for Applications
Deadline: 6 February 2020
Applications are now open for “2020 Emerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH)” which is an innovative multi-partner blended training program for young, promising and emerging health policy & systems researchers, decision makers and other health system actors with an interest to become influential global health voices and/or local change makers.

EV4GH coaches “Emerging Voices” to participate actively in international conferences where global health issues are addressed and to raise their voice in scientific and policy debates. The EV4GH program is managed by an internationally representative governance committee consisting of EV alumni elected by previous EV4GH participants and several invited (liaison) members from EV partner institutes.

Eligibility Criteria
There will be two tracks for which participants can apply to be an EV 2020. While one track is reserved for researchers involved in health policy and systems research, the other track seeks to attract health professionals, activists, decision or policy makers and/or other health systems actors. All applicants must have been born on or after 1 January 1980.

Applicants must submit an abstract for the Sixth Symposium on Health System Research, Dubai and have at least two of the following:
  • A Master’s degree in health or a health-related field
  • Be enrolled in a doctoral-level programme in health or a health-related field
  • At least two-year work or research experience in public health or development
  • Experience and/or knowledge from working in LMICs
Applicants must fulfil one of the following:
  • Be involved in a decision-making, implementation or practitioner role within health services or systems
  • Be a passionate voice for strengthening health systems within their local/national health systems in the role of activists, health journalists or patient advocates or otherwise involved in advancing health equity and social justice in their regions.

For both tracks, special consideration will be given to people who explicitly include the political dimension of health systems and services in their work, and challenge power in whatever form, based on good evidence.
EV4GH is open to all. Focus will be on applicants from the Global South especially LMICs, but candidates from the global north can also apply (they need to have relevant field experience in the global South, though, and work on health policy & systems research in the South).

Applicants can apply via given website.
