CGH Scholars with their mentor, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho, VC of the University for Global Health Equity
Without optimism and hope, progress is impossible.

The University of Global Health Equity is a new institution based in Rwanda that aims to revolutionize health care delivery by training the next generation of health professionals capable of building and leading equitable health systems. Their specific attention to equity means that the most vulnerable are targeted first and no one is ever left out. The ideology of ‘health care for all’ present at UGHE has been an inspiration to me for my entire academic career and I could not have been more excited to spend my summer there.
