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.
1. Learn about the standards required for health, safety, and security for those working overseas in an increasingly insecure international environment
2. Understand the most relevant health, safety, and security measures that staff and students need for working, traveling, and living overseas
3. Apply the steps needed to implement health, safety, and security protocols for students, staff, and volunteers prior to their travel
It is often prohibitive for faculty and students from low & low-middle income countries (LLMIC) to attend our annual conference. To help address this problem, CUGH has a LLMIC travel bursary program. We provide travel support for select faculty and students from LLMICs who have been invited to present at CUGH2019. Please support our colleagues and donate to our bursary program. Please see the attached flyer and kindly share it with your network.
CUGH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible in the US.
CUGH Board Member, Dr. Philip Landrigan, co-authored an opinion piece with Dr. Lynn R. Goldman that was recently featured in the NYTimes, "A Bad Move That Could End Up Exposing Kids to Chemicals: Without explaining why, the E.P.A. has sidelined its top children’s health advocate."

Global health is influenced by so many aspects of life and is, by its scope, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral in nature. How can faculty provide the needed disciplinary breadth in global health courses? How can they enable students to do place-based study-with or without travel-using digital and other sources? What kinds of community engagement and cultural humility/ethical skills are needed?
