Global Health Workshop Scholarship

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Center for Global Health Initiatives (CGHI), working in collaboration with the AAFP Foundation, established the Global Health Workshop (GHW) International Scholarship. The scholarship provides financial support for those in low- and middle-income countries to attend the GHW and co-present about the results of joint work in their area.

"I truly feel that I am a better physician for having attended the AAFP Global Health Workshop."

— Dr. Peter Boro Kamau, Chief Family Medicine Registrar, Moi University Department of Family Medicine, and 2016 Scholarship Recipient
