Healthcare and humanitarian workers are increasingly in the crosshairs as hospitals and aid centers have become part of the battlefield in today’s wars. So far, there has been little to stop the profound surge of violence seen across several open-ended conflicts which has claimed thousands of lives, destroyed health systems, triggered mass displacement and state collapse, and exposed the crisis facing the norms of international humanitarian law contained in the Geneva Conventions.

If you know of an important global health story that’s been overlooked by the media and deserves special notice, we want to hear from you.
NPR’s "Goats and Soda" blog, which covers global health and development, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) and Global Health NOW from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health are pleased to announce the 2018 Untold Stories of Global Health Contest. The contest is designed to give a platform to important but underreported global health stories.
Our hearts go out to the people of Puerto Rico, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and the Caribbean as they cope with the hurricanes that have affected their states. Many of our members are working very hard to provide care and save the lives of those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
To assist our members in their work, we at the Consortium of Universities for Global Health have created a listserv portal that member and nonmember institutions in the areas affected by the natural disasters can use to post their needs. It originally was started after Hurricane Harvey (hence the name), but it extends to those affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
