The WHO Academy, a lifelong learning centre scheduled to launch next year, is working to scale up learning for impact through digital and face-to-face courses, reaching millions of health workers and others worldwide through the latest technologies and advancements in learning science.

As a key part of this effort, we are working with experts and practitioners to develop a global learning strategy that will shape the future of WHO’s approach to training and learning for achieving health goals and the health-related Sustainable Development Goals.

As part of a broader consultation process with experts in health, learning and education, and digital technologies, we would now like to invite everyone with an interest in this topic to join in this endeavor by contributing their ideas to the WHO’s learning strategy.

Accordingly, we have established a Call for Ideas so that anyone can share their Big Idea on how to enhance the quality and impact of training and lifelong learning approaches in health.

The submission form is available in English, French and Spanish.  Just click on the relevant link below, select your language at the top of the page and submit your idea or approach in 500 words or less.

We will use the responses we receive to develop WHO’s global learning strategy to ensure that all who are involved in the world’s health and social-care systems have ample opportunities to strengthen the competencies they need to save lives and improve health outcomes in their communities.

The closing date for the first round of ideas is 8th June 2020.
