CGHE provides support, services and guidance to the Department of Defense (DoD), the United States Government (USG) and international stakeholders in the planning and execution of global health engagements (GHEs), the innovation of new and more effective programs and the dissemination of knowledge and best practices across the DoD GHE enterprise. Through CGHE, Geographic Combatant Commands, Service Component Commands and other DoD and USG agencies are able to tap into a network of global health experts who can assist in shaping more effective and sustainable GHE activities.
In addition to subject matter expertise support, the division develops and executes a range of global health programs on behalf of, and in partnership with, DoD and USG organizations to meet identified needs and support US security cooperation and foreign policy objectives. We focus on sustainable, capacity-building health activities that can demonstrate true impact for partner nations and significant added value to the DoD and USG. These programs include:
The African Peacekeeping Rapid Response Partnership
Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP)
Combatant Commands Disease Surveillance Coordination Project
