Over the last three years, since we set up our Secretariat in Washington, DC, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) has nearly tripled in size. Currently, we have 146 institutional members and a network of 19,000 individuals around the world. Last April, our annual conference attracted 1800 people and was our most successful one yet. Over this short period of time we have added new activities, strengthened our committees across education, research, enabling systems, trainees and advocacy, convened leaders from global health programs, added new workshops and webinars, broadened our international reach and increased the menu of activities and benefits we are providing to those involved in global health. We have done this without any expansion at the Secretariat.
