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.
The University of Virginia's Center for Global Health promotes health in resource-limited settings by fostering the commitment of students, faculty and partners from many disciplines to support health for all.
We toured a number of coffee farms in Nicaragua as well as the coffee drying and roasting site for a co-operative of families living in the area. In addition to working at the site or being able to sell their farms' coffee beans to the co-operative, members are granted certain social privileges as part of their involvement in exchange for their participation in sustainable practices. Among these benefits is access to screenings and preventive care for cervical cancer and other diseases by medical brigades.

This image is from Kruger National Park, Leshiba Wilderness Reserve (in Louis Trichardt), and a small town in Majosi, all in South Africa. This photo was taken in Kruger National Park as we were leaving after spending the day with our research team. We drove through the park all together with one of our South African research partners and had the chance to observe the incredible natural beauty of the country. It was a great bonding experience between our UVA research team as well as our South African partners.
