The World Health Organization (WHO) World Health Assembly (WHA) simulation (WHA SIM) is a simulation-based experiential learning initiative by the School of Global Health modelled on the WHO’s supreme decision-making body. WHA SIM seeks to enhance knowledge and skills around collaborative governance approaches involving multi-sectoral and multi-jurisdictional global challenges, such as those found in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It enables the generation and testing of innovative and feasible solutions on the simulation theme in the form of research briefs, debates, and formal resolutions. This project will design and implement two WHA SIMs, a mixed-methods study evaluating different design and implementation approaches to this simulation-based experiential learning platform, new course proposal and materials that incorporate a WHA SIM, and the development, testing, revision, validation, and dissemination of WHA SIM platform guidance, tools, and materials.
