Researchers at UCSF’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health and the Institute for Global Health Sciences conduct research and training programs around the world to ensure that women have the power to plan their families through access to safe and effective birth control, abortion services, sex education, and childbirth and HIV/STI care — regardless of their age, ethnicity, income, or where they live.
The CHESA Fellowship is a one-year, part-time, non-ACGME fellowship for individuals committed to building careers focused on advancing health equity in perioperative care. The program leverages UCSF resources and expertise to foster the next generation of global surgery and anesthesia leaders who use research, education and advocacy to address disparities in perioperative care.
Country of activity
The program is administered in the United States. Fellows are from Haiti, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Jordan, Romania, and the United States.

The UCSF Informatics Hub provides wide-reaching informatics solutions for numerous PEPFAR countries through the HISTAC project. Our large East African-based technical staff are developing and implementing streamlined open-source EMR functional packages (in OpenMRS) that can used for patient care, program monitoring, and donor reporting for HIV, tuberculosis, COVID-19, and other diseases. They also provide Ministries of Health with technical advice on patient management systems (client registries) and national health data dictionaries.
