Abstract

<p>Globally, significant progress in health equity for children has been made, but much work remains. This article discusses why and how the pediatric community in North America is building a global health (GH) workforce, for domestic "local global" and "international global child health" settings. With a focus on children and families, training this workforce entails attaining GH competencies in medical students, residents, fellows, allied medical professionals, and upskilling current practitioners. The authors highlight currently available training approaches and resources for each group. Global child health is now within the purview of every pediatrician in North America.</p>
