Mount Sinai Global Health Center receives $1M grant

NEW YORK, NY June 30, 2006 The Global Health Center (GHC) at Mount Sinai has received a $1 million dollar grant from the Mulago Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to humanitarian aid. Distributed over a three-year period, the grant will support faculty and finance curriculum development, international research and trips to developing countries. The grant will also help build partnerships with non-governmental organizations such as UNICEF, the International Rescue Committee, and Physicians for Human Rights.

Created in 2005 by David Muller, MD, Dean of Medical Education, Ramon Murphy, MD, MPH, Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Philip J. Landrigan, MD, Professor and Chair of Community and Preventive Medicine and of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai, the GHC has propelled the study of global health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM). The mission of the GHC is to educate medical students about diseases common to the developing world and train them with the skills needed to practice in underserved and limited resource settings. The creation of the program was in response to the huge demand at Mount Sinai for a more coordinated approach to teaching and training students in international medicine.

"The support from the Mulago Foundation is a critical first step in establishing Mount Sinai's Global Health Center as a leader among academic medical centers," says Dr. Muller. "Humanitarian medicine is one of the founding premises of Mount Sinai. Students and faculty travel the world on their own to pursue humanitarian health efforts."

Mount Sinai students and residents will learn about malaria and other aspects of tropical medicine. They will receive training in obtaining clean water, getting around countries that lack sophisticated transportation, assessing disaster areas and employing appropriate interventions quickly, and assisting in refugee and other humanitarian crises.
