About the GloCal Consortium

The GloCal Health Fellowship is managed and supported by the University of California Global Health Institute (UCGHI). UCGHI supports interdisciplinary research and training across the UC campus network. As a UC-wide initiative, UCGHI focuses on producing leaders and practitioners of global health, conducting innovative and relevant research, and developing international collaborations to improve the health of vulnerable people and communities around the world. UC's strength in a range of disciplines such as veterinary medicine, pharmacy, nursing, health sciences, oceanography and economics gives the GloCal Health Fellowship a vast and unique research portfolio which we can use to train the next generation of global health researchers.

The GloCal Health Fellowship Program includes four UCs from the UCGHI (UC San Francisco, UC San Diego, UC Los Angeles, and UC Davis), as well as international partners who are outstanding research institutions based in 17 low- and middle-income countries including: Bangladesh, Botswana, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Peru, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. All sites have been conducting federally-supported research and training for at least three years, have published extensively in major journals and are committed to training the next generation of global health researchers from within their own country as well as the program's collaborating UC campuses.
