Global Alliance for Pre-Service Education


The Capacity Project's online Community of Practice, the Global Alliance for Pre-service Education (GAPS) has been launched on the WHO IBP Knowledge Gateway. This initiative will explore the key issues affecting the education of nursing, medical, midwifery and other health professions students in low resource setting around the world.

Three forums held over the next several months will lead to the development of a competency-based family planning toolkit for pre-service educators. These forums will include:

  • a general discussion of family planning competencies and competency based training principles;
  • a structured group analysis of existing family planning competencies; and
  • an exchange of challenges and best practices associated with teaching to priority competencies.
