Teach to Reach 10 continues a tradition of groundbreaking peer learning started in 2020, when over 3,000 health workers from 80 countries came together to improve immunization training.

17,662 health professionals – over 80% from districts and facilities, half working for government – participated in Teach to Reach 9 in October 2023. Participants shared 940 experiences ahead of the event. See what we learned at Teach to Reach 9 or view Insights Live with Dr Orin Levine.

Teach to Reach is a platform, community, and network to amplify voices from lower-resource settings bearing the greatest burden of disease.

Teach to Reach 10 will focus on the impacts of climate change on health, following the publication of a ground-breaking report sharing insights of over 1,200 health workers.

In the video below, learn from the experiences of 4,700 participants in our Special Event: From community to planet: Health professionals on the frontlines of climate change.

Alongside this theme, other critical health challenges selected by participants for this tenth edition include the Movement for Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030), neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), and neglected needs of women’s health.

In this video of a Teach to Reach session, learn about local action led by community-based health workers to tackle Female Genital Schistosomiasis (FGS), a neglected tropical disease that affects an estimated 56 million women and girls.

In the run-up to Teach to Reach 10, participants will share their real-world experience. Every success, lessons learned, and challenge will be shared back with the community and brought to the attention of partners.

The Manifesto for investment in health workers, a visionary statement elaborated by over 1,300 health workers, will be launched at Teach to Reach 10.

A diverse range of over 50 global organizations have partnered with Teach to Reach since 2020, including Gavi the Vaccine Alliance, the Wellcome Trust, and UNICEF.

The next video is a session with UNICEF on reaching zero-dose children in urban settings.

Alongside global partners and ministries of health, local community-based organizations will also be invited to become Teach to Reach partners.

Partners are invited to join the first Partner Briefing on Monday 4 March 2024, bringing together global health organizations with a commitment to listening and learning from health workers and the communities they serve.
