On October 23, staff, faculty and friends of the Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE) gathered to provide an update on the research, education, technology and leadership development in India, an initiative made possible by benefactors including Raj and Kamla Gupta and David Haas (pictured above) who have been instrumental in the continued success of the program.
Established in 2005, the CCGHE research program focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB and HIV throughout India. Director Bob Bollinger, along with Deputy Director Amita Gupta, spoke in depth of their commitment to improving the health of people in India. Vidya Mave, assistant professor in the Division of Infectious Disease, presented on the clinical research activities and trials she coordinates here at Hopkins and throughout India, focused on therapeutic drug interventions for HIV, TB and hepatitis in adults and children. In order to continue to address the critical health disparities throughout India, the CCGHE has established invaluable partnerships with donors who have committed over $6 million to sustain and enhance the program.
