Advocacy & Research
CFHI’s reach goes well beyond our 30+ global health education programs in 10 countries, 250+ international partners, and 15,000+ alumni. Through advocacy and educational tools CFHI stimulates dialogues in international education and global health circles.
CFHI connects with our Global Team and their communities through an asset-based approach. Where many see lack of resources, we see resourcefulness, richness of culture, a wealth of passion, and an abundance of transformative synergies.

In Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, CFHI is a leader in community-based Global Health Education Programs, embedding participants in existing health systems and elevating local medical and public health professionals as global health experts they are. We offer a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of individual and group-based learners, and scholarship to increase access to our programs.
Standard-setting approaches to trainees in global health
CFHI utilizes Fair-Trade Learning (FTL), a framework that guides the development and continuous improvement of global learning opportunities that rely on partnerships. This framework emphasizes ethics, authentic partnership, financial stewardship, and communication.
