What are the Colorado School of Public Health’s Center for Global Health Programs?
The Center for Global Health has five areas of focus: family and child health, community health system development (with an emphasis on eHealth), translational research (with an emphasis on vaccines, new therapeutics, and diagnostics), adult health (with an emphasis on non-communicable diseases and occupational health), and education in Colorado and throughout the world.
Our WHO Collaborating Center for Promoting Family and Child Health is one of only two maternal and child health collaborating Centers in the Americas and provides the infrastructure for our family and child health activities. Programs funded by Children’s Hospital Colorado include:
1. Reducing excessive neonatal deaths through resuscitation training programs (Helping Babies Breathe) and other community-based models of care. Explore.
2. Vaccine related research, education, service programs, and policy development. Explore.
3. Training programs for pediatric disaster preparedness and response. Explore.

The Trifinio Center for Human Development provides the opportunity to evaluate many of the maternal and child health interventions developed by our multidisciplinary teams, as well as provides training and educational opportunities for a wide range of students, residents and fellows in global health through participation in our family clinic, birthing center, community-based services and research projects.
