Last year, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) secured a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to work with the US academic community to increase support for US leadership and funding for global health. To achieve this objective, we are collaborating with our members to inform members of Congress, State legislators and the public about the value of global health to their community, state, nation and the world.

Malnutrition in its many forms is a major contributor to the global burden of disease and disability and has gained prominence on global and national policy agendas. This is illustrated by several resolutions, goals and targets from the World Health Assembly, the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement being implemented in over 60 countries, the existence of nutrition targets within the Sustainable Development Goals and increased investments by donors and foundations.
We have a great opportunity to do a better job of connecting real world problems with research capabilities. CUGH has created this online tool to bridge that gap. We are inviting institutions, governments, NGOs and companies to post funded research questions ( high or middle income nations) or unfunded questions ( low- income nations) on this site. Researchers interested in doing this work, especially those working on their Masters or PhD degrees are encouraged to apply to the requests posted here.

Join the webinar that will discuss the potential value of climate information in routine epidemiological surveillance systems, early warning and risk assessment for climate-sensitive health outcomes as well as in the prevention of all types of hydro-meteorological disasters, infectious disease emergencies and nutrition crises.
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).
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.
