It assists members in sharing their expertise across education, research and service. It is dedicated to creating equity and reducing health disparities everywhere. CUGH promotes mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships between universities in resource-rich and resource-poor countries, developing human capital and strengthening institutions' capabilities to address these challenges. It is committed to translating knowledge into action.

Unite for Sight

As a pioneer of responsible healthcare delivery, Unite for Sight serves, empowers and mentors organizations and individuals to provide high-quality outcomes.

American Academy of Family Physicians

The AAFP offers a wide variety of information, tools and resources on global health. Because the health of patients within U.S. borders is affected by the health of populations worldwide, and health outcomes in other countries can be affected by developments in the U.S., family physicians have a significant stake in global health issues.
