UB CGHE is a scholarly community with an aim to improve people’s lives around the world.

To become a leader of community-driven, university-based transformational change, we bring together scholars in health sciences and Architecture, Planning, Engineering, and other cross-synergizing disciplines (APEX) to:

  • Advance foundational science to develop innovative, low-cost solutions to improve health equity
  • Develop innovative solutions to overcome socio-cultural barriers to optimal health and well-being
  • Build and sustain relationships with and contribute critical guidance to policy-making organizations to improve global health equity
  • Improve the dissemination of equity-promoting practices of implementation organizations
  • Demonstrate impact through projects that improve the health and well-being of target communities
  • Train students to develop the expertise to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams and to contribute to research, engagement and implementation activities that advance global health equity

Our solution-oriented, transdisciplinary approach seeks to contribute forward-thinking approaches to promote health equity across the globe.
