Recognition, yet no funding: the postgraduate GHTM programme has been officially recognised but no structural funding is available to secure its future. Recently, the coordinating training institute for GHTM was awarded a one-year funding by the Dutch government. A good start; however, this covers only a fraction of the costs of the complete postgraduate programme.
‘Into the world’ advocates the essential role MDs GHTM play in international health. The book ‘Into the world’ – the core of the campaign – illustrates what the programme means to doctors, patients and global healthcare – today and tomorrow, near and far. With your support, we hope to safeguard structural funding for the postgraduate programme as a whole.
What are we aiming for?
With the book and the campaign “Into the World”, we put the spotlight on the Dutch MD Global Health and their impact on- and contribution to global healthcare. The book highlights personal stories of doctors together with the vision of leading experts on the role of the MD GHTM in global healthcare. In line with the book, the social media campaign further emphasises the importance of the MD GHTM. At the end of the year, in December 2017, the zenith of the campaign will take place: the ‘’Into the World’’ symposium and book launch.
Through all of these events, we aim for:
- Awareness: make people aware of the role of the MD GHTM in global healthcare; abroad and upon their return to The Netherlands.
- Funding: in order to secure the future of the MD GHTM, we must acquire sustainable governmental funding as a part of the national political agenda.
