2018 VELJI AWARDS FOR GLOBAL HEALTH EXCELLENCE
Drs. Anvar and Pari Velji were born in villages in Kenya and Tanzania with very impoverished health care systems. They lost three siblings in infancy to diphtheria, and in their adult years committed themselves to a lifetime of work to improve the health of all human beings, regardless of their origins, through better education. This passion for global health led them, in conjunction with CUGH, to develop the CUGH/Velji Awards to recognize and support others who have dedicated their lives to improving health outcomes around the world.

REFLECTION IN GLOBAL HEALTH ESSAY CONTEST
Reflection is a powerful tool in global health education and practice. All current undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate trainees as well as GH practitioners are invited to submit essays to reflect upon the meaning and lessons learned from global health experiences. These may be in a research, educational, clinical, or service capacity. The impacts of these experiences on professional development and personal growth are revealed in new partnerships, insights into cross-cultural or ethical issues and ideas for change.
