Capacity Strengthening Platform

This site was created to strengthen training in low income countries by connecting trainers with the training needs of institutions in those countries.

The site allows institutions as well as affiliated individuals to post their training needs and training offerings.  The trainings can be in the form of partners, mentors, courses, and other offerings. We invite academic institutions, governments, NGOs and affiliated individuals to share their training needs and offerings.

At this time, we are piloting a “focus area” for postings in the field of implementation science.  We intend to extend this “focus” to other high volume areas as the platform posts come online.

Capacity Building STAR Project Resources

The USAID funded STAR Project in which CUGH was a sub released its Landscape Analysis which looked at the capacity needs of academic institutions in the US and in LMICs with respect to developing effective global health engagements.

See also, STAR’s Comprehensive Review of Academic Partnerships. This review was conducted in partnership with CUGH’s STAR Committee. We are grateful to the members of CUGH’s STAR Committee who contributed to these reports which may be of use to anyone developing collaborations between academic institutions.

The STAR Project concluded in 2023.
