Global Health Collaboration Makes Cross-Sector Educational Approaches a Reality

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

​A recognized obstacle in addressing the Global Health challenges of our time, including the over 6,000,000 preventable child deaths and 300,000 maternal mortalities a year worldwide, is that our education system is hampered by silos preventing cross-discipline educational approaches.  The rise of Global Health as a field of education, research, and practice aims to break down these silos. A collaboration between Bay Area non-profit leader Child Family Health International and the Washington-based Consortium of Universities for Global Health provides a key tool to overcoming this hurdle.
