For many global health practitioners, the link between the law and global health is not clear. However, upon closer look, much of the framework for how global health is conceived and practiced is grounded in the laws, regulations and guidance that emanate from global organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the United Nations. Human rights laws that create the right to health, regulations that come into play during a pandemic, international guidance relating to breast milk substitutes, international pharmaceutical regulation, etc.
CUGH THREE-DAY WORKSHOP:
US AGENCIES PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT / CAPTURE MANAGEMENT
October 17-19, 2016
This training course will provide a detailed exploration of the principle components of a successful proposal development process using capture management strategies.
The course takes place over three days, 9 AM to 5 PM, at the University of California Washington Center at 1608 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington DC 20036.
We at CUGH are continually trying to identify ways in which we can impact global health challenges and provide value to our members. In order to achieve this we need your guidance and input. To this end we are starting a quarterly conference call with our member leads.
During this call there was an opportunity to give us feedback on how CUGH can serve your institution, provide ideas for programs and initiatives, and share innovations and challenges with your colleagues.
The first meeting took place on 9/28 at 12 PM Eastern.
CUGH is collaborating with Liaison International (LI), an internationally recognized leader in the development and management of Centralized Application Systems (CAS) to explore the possibility of CUGH implementing such a system for global health programs within North America based academic centers.

What student development are we aiming for in global health education? How do we assess learner growth that requires demonstration, consistency, and varying contexts? What controversies exist in global health competencies that every educator should be aware of?
As we begin the new year, CUGH invites you to join us to learn about our upcoming activities for 2016 and 2017. Dr. Timothy Brewer, Chair of our Board and Dr. Keith Martin, our Executive Director, hosted this webinar. They discussed CUGH's priorities, took questions from viewers and provided an opportunity for participants to share with us how CUGH can better serve the needs of their organizations and address the global health challenges before us. This webinar was open to CUGH members and non-members.
Global health work and training in underserved areas presents unique opportunities to serve and to learn, but also increases exposure to safety risks. The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the Nepal earthquake, and the current refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East highlights the need for a strong focus on the health, safety, and security of those working and training globally.
Approximately 5 billion out of 7 billion people in the world have no or little access to basic surgical care. Out of the roughly 250 million operations performed each year, only 3.5% are performed on the poorest 1/3 of the world's population. Injuries alone cause 5.7 million deaths yearly, much more than the 3.8 million deaths caused by malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis combined.
