Upcoming CUGH Events
CUGH is seeking nominations from our membership for seven new Board Members for three-year terms that will start in April 2020. If you wish to nominate yourself or an individual who meets the criteria below and is not from an institution that is already represented by someone on the current Board of Directors (see attachment), please do the following:
This is an invitation to join the Trainee Advisory Committee (TAC) subcommittee of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH). The Trainee Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of 25 student trainees in global health who advocate for and contribute student perspectives to the workings of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH). In doing so, we aim to advance CUGH’s mission “to improve the well-being of people and the planet through education, research, service, and advocacy."
Every year more than 100,000 Americans are shot. Of these, 30,000 people die. This is a preventable, public health disaster and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) is addressing it with a simple, non-partisan call for action. Below, please find our Gun Control Tracker that shows if current US congresspersons are supporters or opponents of gun safety regulations.
CUGH strongly opposes the US administration’s announcement this week that it is freezing all funds for Official Development Assistance (ODA) for the fiscal year 2018-2019. ODA has historically received bipartisan support because most Republican and Democratic lawmakers see this as a way to effectively support US security and economic interests. Legislators have also agreed that this is morally the correct thing to do. Freezing aid undermines these interests.
