CUGH’s 2017’s annual conference theme was “Healthy People, Healthy Ecosystems.” This theme is reflective of CUGH’s ongoing efforts to work collaboratively and across disciplines to disseminate information and address complex challenges the world faces. CUGH embodies a vision of a safer, healthier, more compassionate, open, and fairer world. CUGH believes in a world without borders, because the desire for health and well-being is universal and doesn’t change based on race, ethnicity, national, socioeconomic status, sexual identity, or geographic location.
To evaluate the experiences of recent graduates of global health programs entering the workforce, the Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II sponsored The Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) to implement "The Global Health Recent Graduates Study: Obstacles and Opportunities to Employment in Global Health” in the Fall of 2016. The study aimed to better describe and quantify student's global health workforce transition from graduate education to initial employment.
