About the Organization

The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is a new university based in Rwanda that is building the next generation of global health professionals—doctors, nurses, researchers, and public health and policy experts—into leaders and changemakers. An initiative of Partners In Health (PIH) and led by internationally recognized faculty and staff from around the world, UGHE is an independent, accredited university that builds on PIH’s three decades of experience in delivering health services to some of the world’s poorest communities. Launched in 2015, with the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery, UGHE has since added a portfolio of Executive Education courses and will soon launch an undergraduate medical degree.

UGHE is bringing forth a new way of training leaders who will emerge ready to develop health care services and systems that connect neglected communities with essential–and ultimately life-saving–attention. The University’s approach is grounded in experience and focused on delivery, and is guided by the belief that equity in education can be the catalyst for equity in health care. In all current and future offerings, UGHE prioritizes hands-on and practical field experience; focuses on “systems” rather than symptoms; and provides training in leadership and management. Students leave prepared to address the complexity of delivering care in all settings.

UGHE’s vision is a world where every individual—no matter who they are or where they live—can lead a healthy and productive life. Learn more at
