The 2022 Untold Stories of Global Health Contest has been announced by the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) and Global Health NOW from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The goal of the competition is to give significant but underreported global health stories a voice.
The purpose of CUGH and GHN is to raise global awareness about health concerns. We were hoping you could submit a nomination for a problem that you believe needs immediate attention, whether you’ve worked on it or come across it on your travels. The nomination deadline is on January 2, 2022.
The Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) fosters multidisciplinary cooperation and knowledge exchange to address global health concerns. It enables members to share their knowledge in the areas of education, research, and service. It is committed to achieving fairness and decreasing health inequities around the world. CUGH fosters long-term, mutually beneficial cooperation between universities in resource-rich and resource-poor nations, with the goal of growing human capital and enhancing institutions’ ability to solve these issues. It is dedicated to putting knowledge into practice. Worldwide Health NOW is a cleverly curated, free, easy-to-scan weekday email from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health that brings critical news, unique opinions, and original reporting on the US and global public health to 50,000+ subscribers in 170 countries.
