Global Child Health Curriculum

Developed in 2011 by the Candian Paediatric Society’s Global Child and Youth Health Section, the Global Child Health Curriculum is a training program designed to provide Canadian paediatric trainees with foundational knowledge around global child health issues. 

The curriculum is made for educators and consists of four, one-hour interactive modules that have been designed to be taught as an educational series or standalone pieces, easily integrated into existing residency curricula. The modules focus on:

  1. Global Child Mortality
  2. Undernutrition
  3. Fever in the Returned Child Traveller
  4. Children and Youth New to Canada


The complete educational package includes a trainer manual, four slide decks, resident handouts, multiple choice questions, structured clinical exam cases, etc..
