CLOSED: Application Deadline September 15: Apply Now- CUGH TAC 2020-2022

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."

Introducing CUGH's Gun Control Tracker

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.

US Foreign Funding Freeze will Undermine US Efforts to Address an Array of Global Health Challenges.

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.
