Global Health Forum 2018: Innovative Approaches to Global Health Challenges in Low and Middle-Income Countries

The past decades have witnessed significant strides in global health, yet around two thirds of total deaths worldwide are attributed to preventable and treatable diseases, with the highest burden found in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and among women and children. Innovative approaches and technologies play a vital role in saving lives, improving overall health outcomes around the world and achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Call for New Members - Global Health Operations Committee

Dear Colleague,

We hope that this finds you well and about to begin an enjoyable and restful summer. As co-chairs of the CUGH Enabling Systems (ENSYS) committee, we are reaching out to request your help and insight.

As you may know, the ENSYS committee was formed several years ago to help address the wide array of operational challenges (sending funds, travel safety, etc.) that Global Health work can involve. To make the committee’s focus more explicit, its name is being changed to the Global Health Operations committee.
