Global health is public health. Due to the lack of consensus, however, on the core global health competencies expected of masters"'level students in global health programs, universities are providing varying levels of instruction and practica for their students. Meanwhile, health concerns shared across the globe are increasing. Chronic diseases, once nearly exclusive to higher"'income countries, are now on the rise in low"' and middle"'income countries, while infectious diseases (HIV, H1N1, tuberculosis) have spread easily to countries at every income level. Global health"'related infrastructure changes are already underway at many flagship universities, spurring the Association of Schools of Public Health to launch a national process to create a global health competency model. The process will take place in two phases, for two different target audiences.

Phase 1: Competencies for master's level students in global health programs.
Phase 2: Competencies for all students in a globalized graduate public health curriculum.

This town hall session will discuss the aims of the project, the competency development process, and the current status of the project.
