    CUGH is now accepting applications for Small Global Health Education Grants!

    Dr. Tom Hall, a global health leader and one of CUGH's greatest supporters has generously provided a gift to support global health education grants. CUGH members are invited to apply for either small grants (under $5,000) or for larger grants (up to $10,000). Deadlines for the grant proposals will be March 1, 2017 and September 1, 2017.

    Funding for Neglected Diseases at Their Lowest Level Since 2007

    Neglected diseases affect more than 1 billion people around the world. They disproportionately impact the poor causing tremendous suffering, disability and sometimes death. Most are preventable or treatable. Sadly, funding to address these neglected diseases is at its lowest level since 2007.

    Increased funding across all sectors is needed to develop new therapeutics and enable people to access the treatments they need. Without this, over 1 billion individuals will suffer needlessly, many of whom are amongst the world’s most vulnerable people.

    GHC has released the Global Health Works: Maximizing U.S. Investments for Healthier and Stronger Communities, the Global Health Briefing Book for the 115th U.S. Congress

    This biennial publication provides a comprehensive set of statistics and impact stories illustrating how the United States has been a leader in global health over the past decade. There are 18 briefs in total that address some of the most pressing global health issues, from maternal and child health to global health security.
