STAR Partners

Operating under a five-year cooperative agreement with USAID, the Public Health Institute oversees the implementation of STAR, in partnership with:

Public Health Institute

The Public Health Institute (PHI) is the lead partner for USAID's Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) Project. Headquartered in Oakland, California, PHI has over 40 years of leadership in public health. PHI’s mission is to promote health, well-being and quality of life for all people through research and evaluation, training and technical assistance, and by building community partnerships.

Johns Hopkins University (JHU)

JHU is the world’s largest school of public health, with 670 full-time and 709 part-time faculty devoted to advancing global knowledge and understanding of public health through research, teaching and service. To maximize learning opportunities for STAR participants, JHU will facilitate academic support, training, adjunct lecture opportunities (where appropriate), and mentoring opportunities. On STAR, JHU will also provide guidance on global health competencies that will inform how academia can better equip tomorrow’s global health practitioners with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for success.

The Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH)

CUGH has 170 institutional members and 30,000 individual members, making it the world’s largest academic consortium engaged in global health. CUGH promotes mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships between universities in resource-rich and resource-poor countries, developing human potential and strengthening institutions' capabilities to address global health challenges. On STAR, CUGH will leverage its network to facilitate academic partnerships, while serving as a knowledge hub for best practices and resources that translate to better program implementation.

University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)

UCSF’s Institute for Global Health Delivery and Diplomacy works in California and around the world to train global health leaders, help governments and organizations improve their health systems, and build sustainable solutions to improve health and eliminate the disease. UCSF will facilitate STAR participants’ access to relevant curriculum, training and mentoring opportunities within its network of schools, institutes, and centers. They will also assemble a Technical Advisory Group, which will engage ministries of health and national academic research partners in an ongoing dialogue about global health workforce needs and gaps.

Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) is a project of the Public Health Institute Implemented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University and University of California, San Francisco.
