Our Mission

  • To train, support, and empower health care providers and health researchers in resource-limited communities

  • To demonstrate improved health outcomes in the communities served by our team and trainees

Our Approach

Since our founding in 2005, CCGHE has developed local partnerships in 20 countries. Responding to our partners’ health priorities:

  • We have leveraged the expertise of Johns Hopkins faculty and collaborated with in-country experts to build needs-based educational programs delivered by world experts.
     
  • We have developed and pioneered the use of information communication technologies (ICT) to cost-effectively deliver interactive and self-paced distance-learning programs and innovative mobile Health (mHealth) applications to facilitate health care services, health education, and research activities.
     

Our faculty is collaborating with in-country scientists and Johns Hopkins partners to help prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV, to reduce domestic violence, to optimize tuberculosis and HIV services, to make drinking water safer, to reduce the burden of chronic disease, to optimize health care delivery, and to evaluate health outcomes.

Our collaborative approach builds in-country expertise to independently develop educational programs, conduct top-notch research, and implement clinical support tools and distance learning infrastructure.

Our broad vision builds programs that include health care workers at all levels, such as nurses, midwives, physicians, laboratory technicians, pharmacists, health professional students, degree programs, and a variety of front-line health workers, and that cover diverse content areas ranging from tuberculosis and HIV to surgical techniques and gender-based violence.
