Jim Jensen, Chris Lowry in Uganda.

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. 

Travel Funding Criteria

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.).

Funding from the CGHE are largely programmed but some funds exist to support faculty travel and collaboration development. Preference is given to faculty requesting funds for work that aligns with CGHE Big Ideas teams.

Funding Criteria

Funded activities must meet the principles of the CGHE as described below:

  • To develop synergistic relationships with health, policy, practice, research, and civil society stakeholders
  • To enhance research, discovery, development, and translation to tackle individual and community inequities in global health
  • To advance the vision and mission of UB, building awareness and engagement in global health equity across campus, among faculty, staff, and students

Travel funding may be used for any of the following purposes:

  1. Collaboration and partnership building activities
  2. Developing research programs
  3. Developing global health study abroad experiences

Funds for conference travel or other special events will not be provided. Travel expenses incurred before notice of award from the CGHE may not be reimbursable.

Reporting requirements within 60 days of travel completion:

  • Submit a two-page summary of the outcomes of the travel and next steps
