Webinar | The One Health Opportunity- A Powerful Mechanism to Improve Global Health Outcomes

One Health integrates a broad range of biomedical and non-biomedical disciplines to improve the health of people, animals and our environment. It reflects the indivisibility between ourselves and the natural world. It is also an opportunity to improve health outcomes and address the social determinants of health. This webinar brings together three leaders in this field who will share important insights into the power of this platform and what we can all do to impact the challenges affecting us and our natural world.

STAR Academic Partnerships - January 2020 Update

Each of the partnerships developed a Memorandum of Understanding to complete specific tasks or deliverables that advance global health practice. In December 2019, STAR completed the first of three Learning Exchanges with each of the partnerships to capture two baseline assessments: one on the actual partnership, completed collaboratively with the two partners; and the other on capacity building around knowledge management (KM), completed by each of the academic institutions individually.

Webinar | Improving access to palliative care: Interdisciplinary approaches to ease serious health-related suffering

Serious health-related suffering (SHS) afflicts over 61 million people worldwide, with over 80% of symptom burden occurring in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Palliative care – an interdisciplinary intervention aiming to relieve physical, psychological, social, and spiritual suffering for patients and caregivers arising from serious illness – can reduce SHS globally. While access to palliative care has been deemed an essential human right by the World Health Organization and other international entities, there are major gaps in palliative care access and delivery that disproportionately afflict those in LMICs. These gaps are exacerbated by a lack of trained workforce, lack of access to pain medications, and inadequate integration into health systems and healthcare delivery.
