Strengthening training capacity globally by connecting trainers
with training needs

Welcome to CUGH’s Capacity Strengthening Platform.

The deficit in skilled workers is a major obstacle to achieving the SDGs. This is especially acute in low- and lower-middle income countries (LMICs). In order to help address this challenge to sustainable development this site was created to serve three primary functions: enable universities, institutions, governments and other development actors (especially in LMICs) to access the trainers they need to strengthen their own training capabilities across biomedical and non-biomedical disciplines; provide a platform where institutions with trainers can identify institutions that may need their assistance; and strengthen the translation of science into policies that are scaled up. Please use this site to list trainers your institution is seeking or trainers and educational products you would like to share across biomedical and non-biomedical disciplines. We hope this site will help universities, governments and other organizations to strengthen their training capabilities and reduce the human resources deficits their countries are facing.

Academic institutions, governments, and NGOs

Need help with your training needs? We are inviting academic institutions, governments, NGOs, and others in low-resource settings to register and use this platform to share your training needs and opportunities.

Through the platform, individuals can register and develop a profile while associating themselves with an institution. Individuals then create postings relevant to three potential matching areas: 1) Partnership Development, 2) Established Training Programs, and 3) Mentorship. Registrants can search the site to identify potential matches, securely communicate directly through the platform to connect, and report the impact of any developed partnerships for the benefit of the wider global health community.

Want to help meet training needs? Register on this platform and share specific training needs or training resources you can help with and connect with institutions that need them.
