Emerging Voices for
Global Health .

Be the next Global Health Changemaker.

Emerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH) is an innovative multi-partner blended training program that includes face-to-face training and virtual training components, for young, promising, and emerging health policy & systems researchers, decision-makers, and other health system professionals with an interest in becoming influential global health voices and/or local change makers, particularly in LMIC.

Legacy of EV4GH venture

The EV4GH venture was initially conceived by the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp in 2010 with the aim of empowering health systems researchers from the global South by providing them with intensive skills training and facilitating their participation in global health symposia. After initial success with a small cohort of researchers aspiring for local change and global impact, the EV4GH venture began to involve more institutions from across several LMICs.

Over time, the emerging voices (EV) initiative has acquired a life of its own with over 260 EVs from 6 cohorts (2010-16) representing close to 60 countries in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin, North, and Central America. EV4GH has reconfigured itself with a globally representative elected governance board and a secretariat based at BRAC James P Grant School of Public Health, BRAC University in Bangladesh.
