University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is a new kind of university focused on training the next generation of global leaders in health care delivery. UGHE launched in Rwanda in September 2015 with its flagship degree program: the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery (MGHD). Through an academic experience uniquely rooted in the values of equity, students are empowered both to ease suffering at the bedside and to drive transformational, systemic changes to the health system. UGHE is committed to an exceptional educational experience rooted in dynamic and engaging courses prioritizing a high degree of faculty mentorship and experience-based learning.
UGHE is an initiative of Partners In Health (PIH), an internationally recognized non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. For three decades of operating alongside public sectors in countries around the world, PIH has developed a model to deliver high quality health care to some of the world’s most marginalized communities. Nowhere has this impact been more profound than in Rwanda, where InshutiMu Buzima—PIH’s sister organization—and our government partners have driven innovation for a decade.
