Could you help explain what The Global Health Network is all about on video? If so here's a chance to win a training workshop held at your centre! 

We're delighted to announce a new video competition inviting our amazing members (YOU!) to submit a short video clip sharing how The Global Health Network has been an avenue for your vision and helped you in your career and professional development. 

Shortlisted entries will be featured in the upcoming short film showcasing what The Global Health Network is all about. 

The winner will be awarded a fully funded Global Health Network Research Skills workshop at their centre. 

An important aim of this competition is to make sure your voice and experience is heard, recognised and shared widely with our global audience, funders and supporters. This will help us continue to get the funding and support we need to support you with the knowledge and tools that make health research easier, faster and better. 


Record a short video clip of yourself, begin the video by telling us your name, location (city or country) and answer the following questions:

  1. What do you want to achieve in the job that you do?
    Please start your answer with “As a (your job title) I want to…” 
    Keep your answer to 20 seconds

  2. How has The Global Health Network helped you professionally?


  3. What’s the most useful resource you’ve benefited from on The Global Health Network?
    We want to hear about specific examples of what you have found or used on The Global Health Network and what new skills, information, support, encouragement or inspiration you gained.

You don’t need fancy equipment, your phone will do perfect, just remember to hold the phone landscape rather than portrait.

The film should be no longer that 3 minutes.

We're looking forward to receiving your video entry and wish you the best of luck!

    This is a great opportunity but I wish the award amount for the workshop was mentioned

    Dear Cletus, many thanks for your interest in the competition and continued support for the network and communities of researchers.

    We usually in these instances provide support for workshops based on in-country costs. To give you an idea of size we would look to support a workshop of between 50-100 participants to support logistics on the day. We would also provide templates and tools and support with organisation. I hope that helps and we look forward to your entry. Many thanks The Global Health Network Team
