What We Do

The CGHI believes that the key to achieving global health for children and their communities is through creating a sustainable infrastructure for Clinical Service, Education and Research. To that end, we focus on creating bi-lateral relationships in which training, resources and research results are shared. We currently have three focused country programs in Ecuador, Uganda and Vietnam that represent a model for sustainable, long-lasting impact.

These programs focus on the cornerstones of sustainability: Capacity Building - improving infrastructure such as clinical labs and associated training to advance our understanding of in-country diseases, Clinical Service - identifying areas of clinical need and providing hands on training and education, and Translational Research - identifying areas of research that will advance our understanding of in-country diseases and help direct interventions and policy. In addition to our signature country programs, the CGHI has a variety of other clinical and translational research projects underway across the globe. Our goal is to utilize these smaller projects as a core foundation from which to develop the capacity building, clinical services and translational research needed to create additional signature programs over time.
