Learn More About the STAR Project

Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) is a five-year project of the Public Health Institute, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Its goal is to strengthen global health professionals, organizations, and the practice of global health through:
• A learning-centered Fellowship and Internship program
• Capacity-building for host organizations
• Knowledge-sharing collaborations between paired academic institutions

STAR is managed by the Public Health Institute and implemented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH).

Webinar: Implementing Effective Capacity Building Partnerships in Global Health

Enabling high quality health professions education is key to ensuring high quality healthcare globally. Educational partnerships between high and low resource settings have been one way to try to advance this goal. The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC), an educational partnership between the University of Toronto (UofT) and Addis Ababa University (AAU) is one such partnership. The TAAAC model was designed to help address an urgent need for increased university faculty to teach in the massive expansion of universities in Ethiopia.

Preventing Wildfires

Ya Yang & Keith Martin MD

The Camp and Woolsey Fires devastating parts of California are not the first, nor will they be the last of their kind.

California has always had wildfires but what we have seen over the last year (2 out of the 10 worst fires since 1932 have occurred in 2018 alone) will only become more frequent unless the federal, state and local governments implement an integrated plan of action. This must include the private sector, academia, NGOs and the public.
