Global Health Equity Scholars Program

The Global Health Equity Scholars Program supports one-year research training of post and predoctoral fellows at 31 partnering international institutions. The goal of the program is to generate a new and young cadre of global health researchers, educators and professionals from diverse disciplines to address health needs and promote social equity. A major focus of the program is the health challenges which have emerged due to the rapid growth of slum settlements in both urban and rural settings of low and middle-income countries.
