The 9th Annual CUGH Global Health Conference
New York City, NY
Host institutions: Columbia University, Stellenbosch University, University of Peradeniya
Main Conference March 16-18 | Satellite Sessions March 15
Reproductive health is a lifetime concern for both women and men, from infancy to old age. Evidence shows that reproductive health in any of these life stages has a profound effect on one's health later in life. UNFPA supports programs tailored to the different challenges people face at different times in their lives, including comprehensive sexuality education, family planning, antenatal and safe delivery care, post-natal care, services to prevent sexually transmitted infections (including HIV), and services facilitating early diagnosis and treatment of reproductive health illnesses (including breast and cervical cancer).
UNFPA works with governments, the private sector, other UN agencies, and donors to develop comprehensive efforts to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care. UNFPA advocates for integrating the delivery of these services into primary health care, so it is as accessible as possible. This means, for instance, that a woman could address her family planning, antenatal care, HIV testing and general health needs all in one place.

With ever-increasing globalization and surging interest in global health there is growing interest on the part of medical students and medical schools to incorporate international electives into medical education.
Cross border medical exchanges enable students to work with different patient populations, develop cross-cultural understanding, and learn about health systems and approaches to medical care in other nations.
This webinar will examine student selection, preparation and ethical considerations when sending health professions students from the Global North to LMIC countries, common challenges and solutions cited by institutions in the Global North that host international visiting students from LMIC countries, and overall best practices and resources for study abroad.
