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.
Nearly 30 million people a year are afflicted with sepsis leaving millions dead or disabled. Every nation on earth is affected and its incidence is increasing between 8%-13%/yr. Despite its prevalence and disastrous impact on life, communities and economies, it receives little attention. We aim to change that.

The Ebola Outbreak in West Africa sent shockwaves around the world. It laid bare our grossly inadequate response to a global health threat and the terrible state of affairs of health systems in the three most affected countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
