Webinar - Online Member Meeting

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.

Rules for the Road: Global Health, Safety and Security for Deploying Students, Staff, and Clinicians Overseas

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.

The Global Surgery Deficit

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.

Sepsis: A Neglected Global Killer

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.
