Center for Global Health

Irene and nurses in ward

Preparing nurses to work on domestic and international global health issues; UCSF School of Nursing faculty and graduates advance the role of nursing in global health care delivery, research, and education.

The Center for Global Health (CGH) mission is to advance health equity through nursing.

At the University of California, San Francisco, nurses from all departments are involved in global health efforts, from teaching global health courses to the actual delivery of care to marginalized populations. The CGH aims to integrate global health nursing activities in the school with global health efforts across the university. We also collaborate with academic and community partners both in California and around the world to promote training and capacity building for the local nurse work force.
