Section for Global Health Training for Health Professionals

The Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program in the Section for Global Health, funded by the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center from 2011-2016 trained 64 Ghanaian and Nigerian investigators at the University of Ghana in Accra to conduct cardiovascular-related research and to compete for extramural funding. The program aimed to increase the number of researchers and health services professionals in sub-Saharan Africa to help the region manage the growing cardiovascular disease burden. We prepared trainees to establish sustainable cardiovascular research capacity and to pursue innovative and contextualized projects targeted at hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and stroke prevention. Currently, the program is not enrolling new scholars pending funding renewal.
