Center for Global Health Engagement
A Featured HJF Research Program
The Center for Global Health Engagement, launched in December 2015, is a new institution at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. The center, led by Navy Captain Glendon Diehl, Ph.D., evolved from the Center for Disaster and Humanitarian Assistance Medicine and aims to leverage academics, scholarship and subject matter expertise from across the University to provide reach-back support, resource advocacy, capability development and operational support for the Department of Defense’s Global Health Engagement enterprise.
The center’s functions include education and training of future leaders; knowledge integration to inform development of best practices; and assessment, monitoring and evaluation of global health engagements conducted across the Department of Defense. Five divisions that have unique goals and objectives, but are still united, will more comprehensively inform global health engagement efforts across the board. The five divisions include Doctrine and Partnership; Research; Operations; Education and Training; and Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation.
