Dr. Cindy Haq presented an overview of UW-Madison efforts in global health to the Bascom Hill Society on October 8, 2010. Notes from the presentation are available here.
“On behalf of Dr. Girma Tefera (UW Surgery) and the UW Center for Global Health, I’m delighted to share wonderful news. The UW-SMPH will be a partner in a new Medical Education Partnership Initiative to improve medical education and build human resources for health capacity in Ethiopia. This project, awarded to Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, is funded by the US National Institutes of Health, the Fogarty International Center and HRSA at $2 million per year for up to 5 years. Wisconsin faculty will build on the pre-existing Emergency Medicine Twinning Partnership, to strengthen medical education and community based education, assist faculty development, build research capacity, and evaluate impacts. The University of Wisconsin will join Johns Hopkins, Emory, and UC San Diego in a partnership with four Ethiopian universities to address one of the most serious health professional shortages in the world.

The project will support credit-based field work in Mexico over the next three years. This work will be carried out in conjunction with PHS 645 sec 04 Global Health Field Study: Mexico
This project will take place in the context of the ongoing partnership between the Center for Global Health and the University of Guadalajara. To date we have hosted faculty exchanges in veterinary medicine and nursing, and 6 of our certificate students have completed their field work at this site. Additionally, two medical students have done clinical rotations affiliated with the University of Guadalajara, and 5 medical students participated in a study there. We will continue to explore interdisciplinary public health activities as well as discipline specific clerkships, rotations and residencies.
The PI for this effort is Lori DiPrete Brown. She will be holding a briefing for Global Health faculty and students interested in being involved in the Baldwin initiative or the broader partnership later this month. Please join me in congratulating Lori on developing this initiative”. Sincerely, Cindy Haq, Director, CGH
