This chapter describes examples of undergraduate and graduate global health international educational program that employ bilateral approaches to facilitate increased engagement and communication between partners in the global north and the global south. The following chapter illustrates methods and models in global health education to foster dialogues and mutually beneficial partnerships. Due to the fast pace of globalization and development, countries situated in the global south need to build their public health workforce now more than ever. Bilateral dialogue offers opportunities in ownership and education for both partners, which strengthens partnerships and ultimately builds a more robust global public health workforce.
