Join CUGH

CUGH's mission is to address global challenges through research, education, and service. We work across disciplines and sectors to share knowledge, develop partnerships, and scale up evidence-based solutions to improve the well-being of people around the world, particularly those that are least privileged. We also work to strengthen global health programs and facilitate networking across a dynamic association of over 135 member institutions and a database of over 8,000 individuals worldwide. CUGH, while primarily academic based, welcomes institutions in the public sector, the private sector, and NGOs that are committed to our mission. We offer a number of dynamic benefits to our members. For a list of these please click here. Together we have an enormous opportunity to build capacity, advocate, and scale up proven interventions that can address the compelling challenges of our time.

On this website, under the Opportunities section, the jobs and paid research opportunities open to members only. This section is designed to attract questions from the private sector, governments and other parties that would like to pay researchers to answer questions or engage in specific projects that they have. We hope this site effectively links training, monitoring and evaluation, research and implementation capabilities with the needs of the private sector, academia, governments, and NGOs.

Contributing to our Interest Groups and Discussion Forums is open to everyone. We encourage you to do this by registering for free by clicking here. This website will be as useful as it is used, so please use it well.

To apply for CUGH membership, please contact us for an application.
