Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR)
Location(s): United States
Sustaining Technical and Analytical Resources (STAR) is a five-year project of the Public Health Institute, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Its goal is to strengthen global health professionals, organizations, and the practice of global health through:
- A learning-centered Fellowship and Internship program
- Capacity-building for host organizations
- Knowledge-sharing collaborations between paired academic institutions
Its purpose is twofold:
(1) Through individual fellowships, STAR will help strengthen the capacity of diverse American and low-and-middle-income country (LMIC) health professionals at all levels to make innovative contributions to global health (GH); and
(2) STAR will create ground-breaking opportunities for both US and LMIC GH academic institutions and other groups, including professional associations and consortiums, to create systems for open-access knowledge sharing, resulting in effective partnerships.
STAR’s individual and institutional participants are contributing to the development of self-sustaining systems and tools that will produce global citizens with the full spectrum of relevant health competencies. STAR is managed by the Public Health Institute, and implemented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH).
