Salam Neighbor Screening: Hello Neighbor Documentary Film Series


Global Studies Center on behalf of The Ridgeway Center and Hello Neighbor. In an effort to better understand refugee life, [the filmmakers] spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, [they] were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis. [Their] experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.

Location TBD

Grand Rounds "How I Live" Documentary and Discussion: Pediatric Cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Children living with cancer is a tragedy made worse with insufficient infrastructure, funds, access to treatment, and trained medical professionals. Unfortunately, families caring for children with cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) face this harsh reality, and it contributes to the low survival rate of just 20% for pediatric cancer, a stark contrast to high-income countries’ 80% survival rate. 

Join the Center for Global Health and the Global Health Student Association in viewing the new documentary film, "How I Live," which delves into the unique issues people of LMICs face. After the film, we’ll have a panel discussion with the film’s producers and global health professionals with a reception afterward.

Center for Global Health Webinar

Strategic Partnerships and Global Reproductive Health at the UN Population Fund

Monday 1/29 1:00PM - 2:00PM

To register, please use this link. The University of Pittsburgh is a CUGH Institutional Member. 

Reproductive health is a lifetime concern for both women and men, from infancy to old age. Evidence shows that reproductive health in any of these life stages has a profound effect on one's health later in life. UNFPA supports programs tailored to the different challenges people face at different times in their lives, including comprehensive sexuality education, family planning, antenatal and safe delivery care, post-natal care, services to prevent sexually transmitted infections (including HIV), and services facilitating early diagnosis and treatment of reproductive health illnesses (including breast and cervical cancer).

UNFPA works with governments, the private sector, other UN agencies, and donors to develop comprehensive efforts to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care. UNFPA advocates for integrating the delivery of these services into primary health care, so it is as accessible as possible. This means, for instance, that a woman could address her family planning, antenatal care, HIV testing and general health needs all in one place.

Join Mariarosa Cutillo, Chief, Strategic Partnerships at UNFPA, as she walks us through the global partnerships that facilitate for the achievement of UNFPA's mandate towards universal access to reproductive health services. Ms. Cutillo's presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A session moderated by CUGH Executive Director Dr. Keith Martin.
