Strengthening global health collaboration

The Global Health Team within the Faculty of Health Sciences Office of Professional Development & Educational Scholarship recently became an institutional member of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH), an international body tasked with fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and the sharing of knowledge to address global health challenges.

Global health entails study, research, and practice that prioritize improving health and achieving equity in health for all.

Through this membership in the CUGH, all Queens global health and equity educators, advocates, and researchers will be able to connect with a network of more than 19,000 individuals and over 145 academic institutions involved in global health worldwide. Membership also provides access to interest groups, educational, and program development materials, as well as conferences aimed at building partnerships and engaging in advocacy across research, education, and service. In joining the consortium, all Queens staff, faculty, and students may now enjoy the benefits of membership and have access to CUGH resources.

In light of the universitys commitment to internationalization and new membership in CUGH, the OGH is looking to strengthen Queens global health network by gaining a full understanding of the global health community at Queens. The OGH is conducting a survey to gather information on global health work being done at the university. The survey will also serve to collect information from the Queens community about program information to be shared with the CUGH network.

There is so much important global health and health equity work being done across the faculties at Queens. It seemed like the perfect time to both join the ever-growing CUGH network, and identify potential collaborations here at Queens,” says Jenn Carpenter, Director of the Global Health Team

To complete the survey about work being done at Queens or to join the CUGH network, visit https://queensu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8tXre9zWgcTkuEtPlease note that the global health survey will collect information on academic global health programs to be shared on the CUGH Global Health Academic Programs Database. Only faculties and departments that would like to share their program on the CUGH academic programs database should complete that particular part of the survey. For further information about the survey, please contact the Office of Global Health.
