OUR CENTERS

Capitol_Building_Full_View

The Global Health and Education Projects (GHEP) executes its work on global health, social determinants of health, health disparities, education, and sustainable human development through its two research centers.  Our centers are the intellectual warehouse (think tank) of the work of the organization. As an emerging Washington, DC-based think tank, the centers provide opportunities to do specialized or multidisciplinary programmatic, research, or policy work in health and education. GHEP centers organize conferences, symposia, seminars, webinars, or other forums where experts gather and discuss the policy and programmatic implications of emerging issues in the field of social determinants of health, global health, health disparities, individual, population health, as well as their nexus with global education and education disparities around the world.  Each of our centers advances the mission of GHEP to address health and education inequalities around the world.

Our centers or think tanks provide short-term visiting fellowship hosting opportunities for researchers from around the world to conduct cutting-edge research and policy analysis on global health and education disparities around the world.  Our location in Washington, DC, provides us a unique platform to provide a facility where researchers can conduct research as well as interact with leading experts in public, private, and numerous academic institutions in the capital of the free world.  Working with our academic partners, we provide fellows the opportunity to present their work to multidisciplinary audiences where they can expand the horizon of their research and establish long-standing collaborations.

Thanks to the advancement of information technology, we are now able to offer fellowships to a very select number of experts in global health who are recommended by their peers and who possess the contextual sophistication to uphold the obligations of their fellowship while residing outside the United States. By leveraging information technology in a new and unique way, we are able to contribute to the development of capacity of individuals around the world to conduct work in our mission focus areas.

There are three (3) major categories of fellowship opportunities in our centers:

  1. Senior Research Fellow: must possess an earned doctorate (MD, MBBS, MBBch, PhD, ScD, DrPH, PsyD or their global equivalents) with 5 or more years of practical experience in a relevant field;
  2. Junior Research Fellow: must possess an earned doctorate (MD, MBBS, MBBch, PhD, ScD, DrPH, PsyD or their global equivalents) with less than 5 years of practical experience in a relevant field; and
  3. Expert Practitioner: must possess an earned Postgraduate degree with substantial demonstration of accomplishments in their field of practice in a relevant field.

If you are not sure whether you are eligible for any of the above fellowships, please email us using the more information link in your center of interest.  Please remember to attach a copy of your  your resume (CV) and one of our Co-Directors will get back to you and let you know whether we would like to move forward.


 

Center for Global Health and Health Policy (CG2HP)

The remit of the our CG2HP is to conduct quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research and policy studies that explore the role of particular health status or social, economic, development, and cultural predictors of multiple health outcomes at the individual, community, and population levels.  The center disseminates its work through multiple means including our journal, the International Journal of MCH and AIDS (IJMA), other peer-reviewed journals, research dialogues, policy briefs, policy papers, monographs, fact sheets, blog publications, or through the commissioning and production of special journal supplements targeting specific global health issues or specific global health region of the world, etc.

Center for Global Education and Education Policy (CG2EP)

CG2EP conducts multi-disciplinary research and policy studies on the intersection between education and health exploring predominantly the role of education as a predictor of multiple health outcomes. The center also works with the overall GHEP team to implement programs that address the issues identified in their studies.  Like its sister-center, CG2EP disseminates its work through multiple means including peer-reviewed journals, policy briefs, policy papers, monographs, fact sheets, etc.

CG2EP Programs:  CG2EP also organizes conferences, symposium, seminars, webinars, or other forums where experts gather and discuss the policy and practice implications of emerging issues in the field of social determinants of health, health disparities, individual, and population health.
