A center within the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE) conducts groundbreaking research on prevention and treatment for diseases of greatest burden in India, including HIV and tuberculosis, and on solving issues that complicate infectious disease care, including antimicrobial resistance, immune changes during pregnancy, malnutrition, substance use, access to health care, mental health, and chronic health conditions like diabetes and heart disease. CCGHE’s research ranges from genomics to community-based outreach strategies that improve patient health. 

The center oversees a large clinical research site in Pune, India, and partners with academic medical institutions, hospitals, government and NGO health entities across India. CCGHE’s broad portfolio of work has resulted in changes to standards of patient care in country and globally. Like other centers within Johns Hopkins University, a core component of CCGHE’s work is training and mentoring the next generation of researchers in Baltimore and India.
