The University of Virginia and the University of Venda are hosting a joint symposium emanating from more than 15 years of research collaboration between the two institutions. The symposium will provide an opportunity for panels and discussions surrounding best practices and lessons learned in global health innovation research in Sub-Saharan Africa. It will also provide important networking opportunities for the development of collaborations and identification of additional professional networks for both faculty and fellows.
Join us at CGH to talk about the first Sustainable Development Goal, No Poverty. (This event held at Alderman Library, Room 423).
In collaboaration with the University of Venda and the Fogarty International Center, the UVa Center for Global Health recently hosted over 90 attendees including researchers, healthcare professionals, funding agencies, GIDRT and D43 fellows from 6 countries and 8 universities to exchange ideas around the theme of inspiration, innovation, and implementation.
International experience and particularly, experience centered around global health, is evocative and transformative.

Traveling to Uganda to partake in novel malaria research was an inspiring and immeasurably educational experience. In addition to learning critical epidemiological information on the disease, I expanded my global awareness, empathy, and interest in human health. I regularly reflect on this trip to contemplate how best I can use my skills and education to benefit our global community.
