Programs

Advocacy

The advocacy program highlights important issues in global health. Our hope is that our members will support these initiatives and share them with the public, colleagues, legislators, and others. Only by working together and using traditional media, social media, and other tools will we be able to achieve the impact we want. Increasing awareness can lead to caring about an issue and sharing follows, which ultimately will produce an impact. Please join us in advocating for issues that will improve people's lives, particularly those who are least privileged in this world. Together we will make a difference.

CUGH Advocacy Program Seeks to:

  • Establish CUGH as an effective advocate and central source of information for global health programs, important issues, innovations, and global health funding;
  • Support global health departments/centers/institutes in outreach and advocacy within their own communities;
  • Leverage support and expertise within our membership and beyond to work together to address global health challenges; and
  • Educate and inform the broader global health community with an emphasis on outreach to policy makers and media.
