FHI 360 CSO Says CUGH Contributes ‘Essential Component’ To Global Health Academics
FHI 360’s R&E SEARCH for EVIDENCE: Academia takes on global health
Timothy Mastro, FHI 360’s chief science officer, discusses highlights of the 8th Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH), held recently in Washington, D.C. Mastro concludes, “As the planet’s population grows from 7.5 billion now to 9.7 billion in 2050 (half of the increase will come in Africa) there will be an ever-increasing need to have our best minds working on global heath. CUGH represents an essential component. We need to do all we can to support the institutions that help generate new evidence on global health challenges and then apply this evidence through innovative solutions” (4/12).
