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.

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.
