Experts attending a training course

GIZ’s new database provides an overview of all relevant capacity building opportunities for expert or policy makers in the field of Social Protection and Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Through detailed filter options it allows its users to find the training that corresponds to their specific interests and level of expertise.

Setting up social protection systems is a complex and challenging task which requires development partners to adequately invest in human capacities and technical expertise. Worldwide there exists a vast array of trainings and courses tailored to specific needs, which nonetheless often remains very difficult to navigate for the individual user. This is where the new Global Learning Database for Social Protection and Universal Health Coverage (UHC) comes in! It gives an overview of relevant capacity building opportunities offered by GIZ and a large number of other renowned providers, facilitating the choice of the right course through detailed filter options.

The training formats contained in the database range from specialized academic degrees to short and long term trainings, e-learning formats, events and capacity building workshops. They are offered by renowned universities, network-based providers (e.g. Cash Learning Partnership) and development partners such as the World Bank, ISSA, ILO, FAO, UNICEF and UNDP. Also GIZ, commissioned by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), offers human capacity development formats in the area of social protection and UHC applying state-of-the-art digital technology – globally as well as at regional and national level. The topics and formats are chosen and designed in close cooperation with our partner countries and the respective GIZ programs.

The Global Learning Database has been jointly developed by the GIZ Sector Initiatives ‘Providing for Health (P4H)’ and ‘Systems of Social Protection’ with support of GIZ’s Health and Social Protection Section as an innovative service for interested policy makers and experts complementing and further strengthening Germany´s commitment to knowledge cooperation in the field.

We would like to encourage all partners, experts and colleagues to use and expand the Global Learning Database as well as forward it to interested counterparts:

We are looking forward to your feedback, comments, suggestions and additions to the database. Please contact us via the following e-mail:
