Mission and Goals
The Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE) is a center of excellence supporting clinical care and research training in resource-limited communities. In response on our partners’ needs, we collaborate to build educational programs, in-country clinical support tools and distance learning infrastructure that strengthen capacity. We leverage the extensive ongoing international, collaborative research and training programs at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
The Johns Hopkins CCGHE develops and leverages a broad range of innovative information communication technologies (ICT) to support our mission, including e-learning, telemedicine, video conferencing, social media and mobile health applications.
We invite you to visit "Making a Difference" and view our series of videos that highlights our mission and the impact of our distance learning technology.
- To train, support and empower health care providers and researchers in resource-limited communities.
To demonstrate improved health outcomes in the communities served by our trained health care providers
We currently have partnerships in more than 20 countries, training, supporting and empowering health care workers at all levels, including nurses, midwives, physicians, laboratory technicians, pharmacists, health professional students, degree programs and a variety of front-line health workers. Our programs also include a broad range of content areas including maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, TB, chronic diseases, prevention of gender-based violence, laboratory diagnoses, and surgical techniques. In addition to many on-line courses, the CCGHE has more than 600 clinical case discussions from India, Ethiopia, Uganda and beyond, archived and freely available for health care providers on our site under Online Learning. The CCGHE has also developed an open-source, award winning mHealth application (eMOCHA), which has supported health research and education initiatives in 11 countries.
