For decades, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) researchers have partnered with governments, local agencies, non-government organizations and US government agencies in other countries to address health issues from the HIV epidemic, malaria and TB to surgery, orthopedics and maternal and child health.
As UCSF’s research portfolio and in-country partnerships have expanded, we’ve seen that local registered offices enable us to be more effective and efficient, allow us to hire citizens and more easily comply with government and funder regulations.
Since 2016, UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences has opened Global Programs offices in Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Uganda to support UCSF researchers, as well as researchers from other University of California campuses, working in these countries. An additional office in South Africa is pending. All offices provide administrative support and many also have project management staff. We also offer expertise in informatics, monitoring and evaluation, surveillance and strategic information.
