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.
It is often prohibitive for faculty and students from low & low-middle income countries (LLMIC) to attend our annual conference. To help address this problem, CUGH has a LLMIC travel bursary program. We provide travel support for select faculty and students from LLMICs who have been invited to present at CUGH2019. Please support our colleagues and donate to our bursary program. Please see the attached flyer and kindly share it with your network.
CUGH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible in the US.
CUGH Board Member, Dr. Philip Landrigan, co-authored an opinion piece with Dr. Lynn R. Goldman that was recently featured in the NYTimes, "A Bad Move That Could End Up Exposing Kids to Chemicals: Without explaining why, the E.P.A. has sidelined its top children’s health advocate."

Global Health Competencies are central to Global Health education at undergraduate and graduate levels. The CUGH Competencies Toolkit is an essential resource for educators - including over 1000 multimedia teaching objects to use inside and outside the classroom, assisting faculty to nurture Global Health knowledge, skills and attitudes.
