Shakira Choonara, EV 2014, article gets featured in IHP – Switching the poles in international health policies.
Time really flies! It’s already the fifth edition of theEmerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH) programme – initiated by the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp (ITM) in 2010.

The EV programme now has an established governance structure; it is also listed as a Thematic Working Group (TWG) of Health Systems Global (HSG) with EV alumni from all regions playing a key role in the venture and network!
