CGH LogoDirector: Thomas Quinn

Founded in 2006, the Center for Global Health (CGH) is a collaboration among all Johns Hopkins University schools whose mission is to bring together the University health community to address global health challenges, particularly in low and middle income countries. Since its inception, CGH has included India among its focus areas.  

The center offers a leadership program for Indian students and partners, and annual funding opportunities for Johns Hopkins students and post-docs to work and learn in India under the joint mentorship of JHU faculty and in country partners.  

Emerging Women Leaders in Global Health Program convenes seminars, networking events, and a training course to promote women’s leadership in global health, and its members hail from countries around the world. The program also administers a Slack Workspace network offering resources, job postings, and collaboration opportunities among network members 

Support for International Field Projects (Johns Hopkins Affiliates)  

For Faculty & Students:  

Global Health Established Field Placement Awards help JHU faculty members establish “sites” or scopes of work within their existing international projects. Students then apply to the GHEFP to conduct research and practice activities that support those projects.

For Graduate Students:  

Global Health Field Research Awards support student-initiated India field research projects, which can be sub-studies of a faculty member’s parent study, but research questions are student-initiated. This program is currently closed for the 2021-22 academic year. 

For Residents & Fellows  

Paul S. Lietman Global Travel Grant for Residents & Fellows supports clinical rotations overseas in low- and middle-income countries, including India.

UJMT Fogarty Gobal Health Fellowship CGH is part of the UJMT Fogarty Consortium, funded by the Fogarty International Center within the National Institutes of Health. Trainee research projects are supported by mentors with expertise in clinical, public health, laboratory, and implementation science. Applicants from different levels of training, including postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students, are invited to apply.
