Global Health Delivery Project

The Global Health Delivery Project at Harvard aims to improve health among disadvantaged populations worldwide by systematizing the study of global health delivery and rapidly disseminating knowledge to practitioners through a range of coordinated initiatives. One of the most creative and cutting-edge developments in the field is Global Health Delivery Online (GHDonline), a platform of professional virtual communities developed by the Global Health Delivery Project. GHDonline enables open collaboration between global health implementers and organizations in online “communities of practice” in order to create a new breadth of knowledge applicable in the field and to democratize access to critical information in order to improve the delivery of health care worldwide.

The Abundance Project for Global Health supports the expansion of Global Health Delivery Online to ensure that essential knowledge can reach clinicians where they need it. Abundance Fellows and Scholars participate in the Clinical Exchange community, a secured platform that provides case and specialist consultations between clinicians in Rwanda, Haiti, and at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The first site for the planned expansion of the Clinical Exchange community is Hospital St. Nicholas in St. Marc, where many Partners In Health clinicians, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, are serving the communities that were at the epicenter of the cholera outbreak. Hospital St. Nicholas in St. Marc is also the site for a Haitian Medicine Residency and Nurse Training Project.
