The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE), supports faculty research that promotes the health and well-being of under-resourced populations by helping reduce the sources and effects of inequity.
The CGHE collaborates with the leaders, organizations, and policy makers whose primary mandate is to reduce or eliminate barriers to improved health and well-being in low- and middle-income country settings. With affiliated faculty members from across campus, the CGHE brings together the health sciences with disciplines that are inherently focused on the social, economic, political, and environmental conditions leading to inequity in global health. These disciplines include architecture, planning, engineering, and other cross-synergizing disciplines and are collectively called APEX disciplines (geography, economics, anthropology, etc.).
