The Center for Global Health Delivery, Diplomacy and Economics (CGHDDE) partners with local government leaders and research institutions to catalyze the transformation of health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We aim to improve the implementation of existing programs and help leaders worldwide better design and manage contextually appropriate health programs and policies by studying how effective interventions are defined and implemented and drawing on the lessons learned.
We also work with leaders of large health care systems, primarily ministries of health, to identify specific areas of work to which the implementation research methodologies can be applied. This approach supports existing national strategies while introducing a culture of data-driven decision-making.
The CGHDDE is a collaboration between the UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.
Strengthening InterProfessional Education to Improve HIV Care Across Africa (STRIPE HIV)
Since 2019, STRIPE HIV has played a vital role in addressing the variability of pre-service HIV training in institutions across Sub-Saharan Africa to achieve HIV epidemic control. With investment from the Health Resources and Services Administration and commitment from PEPFAR, STRIPE HIV strengthens interprofessional HIV education, builds health workforce capacity, supports academic and clinical educators to facilitate case-based workshops for interprofessional learners, and ensures the next generation of health workers are capacitated to deliver high-quality, collaborative and evidence-informed HIV care.
Supporting, Mobilizing, and Accelerating Research for Tuberculosis Elimination (SMART4TB) is a five-year cooperative agreement made possible by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with assistance from the American people, that aims to transform TB prevention and care. CGHDDE Director Eric Goosby, MD, serves in a leadership capacity of SMART4TB’s Policy Translation and Community Engagement Technical Area. Dr. Goosby contributes to building a strong framework for policy translation and community engagement, as well as helping to achieve ambitious high-level global policy commitments to advance research to end TB.
“Redefining Global Health in the 21st Century”
This book, authored by Drs. Eric Goosby, Mike Reid, Elizabeth Bukusi and Mosa Moshabela, addresses the most critical issues in global health as we approach the end of the Sustainable Development Goals era: disease shifts, demographics, development assistance for health, domestic health financing, and the increasing importance of decoloniality and sustainable and inclusive models for development. The book is intended for global health students, policymakers, and stakeholders to help them understand the critical issues that must be addressed to continue progressing in global health and guide future research and development. Published by Elsevier in 2024.
A Shot in the Arm Podcast
Dr. Goosby co-hosts A Shot in the Arm Podcast with Ben Plumley, where they reveal the inner workings of how decisions are made that affect the health of millions of people around the world and how the principles of international collaboration and equity serve as a foundation for humanity’s response to the seismic geopolitical shifts and pandemic threats our world now faces.
