Global Health Equity Community of Excellence Fund

Wooden structures created by freshman architecture students as part of a yearlong design-build studio are on display at Artpark in Lewiston.

Help address global health inequity—one of the defining issues of the 21st century—through this fund.

By advancing foundational science, developing innovative solutions, training students and demonstrating impact, the Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE) aims to improve people’s lives around the world.

CGHE supports those who most influence global health—leaders, organizations and policy makers who can affect systemic change and community members around the world who can inspire, promote and implement solutions in their respective neighborhoods.

The Community brings together faculty and students from the health sciences together with disciplines such as architecture, planning, engineering, and other cross-synergizing disciplines (APEX) focused on the social, economic, political and environmental conditions that lead to inequities.

At CGHE we explore a range of issues, including access to sanitation for women and girls, exposure to air pollution among neonates, securing essential medications for low-resource communities, high rates of non-communicable diseases due to complex sets of factors, and access to sufficient quantities of high-quality food.

Operational or research support and enhancements for the Community of Excellence receive financial support through this fund.
