*NEW* CUGH Online Platform for Crowd Sourced Research Questions

Connecting research capacity with the needs of countries, communities, NGOs, and companies poses a challenge and an opportunity. To address this, we have created an online platform where funded or unfunded research questions are posted. We hope this site, which can be found in the "Resources" ribbon on our website, will connect researchers, especially Masters, PhD, or post doc candidates with those requiring high quality research.

Post research questions or view these opportunities here.

Webinar: Implementing Effective Capacity Building Partnerships in Global Health

Enabling high quality health professions education is key to ensuring high quality healthcare globally. Educational partnerships between high and low resource settings have been one way to try to advance this goal. The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC), an educational partnership between the University of Toronto (UofT) and Addis Ababa University (AAU) is one such partnership. The TAAAC model was designed to help address an urgent need for increased university faculty to teach in the massive expansion of universities in Ethiopia.

Preventing Wildfires

November 20th, 2018
Ya Yang & Keith Martin MD

The Camp and Woolsey Fires devastating parts of California are not the first, nor will they be the last of their kind.

California has always had wildfires but what we have seen over the last year (2 out of the 10 worst fires since 1932 have occurred in 2018 alone) will only become more frequent unless the federal, state and local governments implement an integrated plan of action. This must include the private sector, academia, NGOs and the public.
