Global Programs Offices

IGHS has established registered country offices in Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Uganda that support UCSF global research projects. Registration for a sixth office in South Africa is pending. The offices enable IGHS to:

  • Better control project activities, including compliance with funders’ policies
  • Open business bank accounts
  • Legally hire local citizens
  • Facilitate in-country procurement and vendor contracts

These offices currently support UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences researchers, but UCSF is in the process of developing systems, policies and procedures so that these offices will be able to expand support to other UCSF projects in these countries.
