    The quest for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is central to all efforts in global health. Indeed, all high-income countries, except the United States, have had a system of universal health coverage for some time and all low-and middle-income countries have at least a commitment in principle to achieving UHC as soon as possible.

    In this context, it is important for those of us who teach global health to understand the concept of UHC, some of the key reference materials that deal with UHC, and some of the countries that we want our students to study to best understand the “quest for universal health coverage.”

    In April 2016, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference. This followed a similar workshop I led in April 2014.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • How teachers and students might keep up to date in such a rapidly changing field
    • Some of the key value and content issues in teaching global health
    • How participants might get better access to selected global health “experts”

    In April 2014, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • The learning objectives of introductory courses in global health
    • The content of an introductory course on global health
    • Approaches to teaching global health that encourage student interest and learning

    The workshop attracted about 75 people. Almost everyone in the workshop was involved with teaching global health but a few participants were students of global health or former students of global health.
