The Center for Global Reproductive Health, led by Megan Huchko, MD, MPH, launched on February 27th. The Center will foster expertise on policies, programs and innovations in reproductive health through rigorous research, education and strong relationships with partner countries. One of Dr. Huchko’s goals for the Center is to elevate Duke University as a leader in global reproductive health.
Center members aim to cultivate new collaborations; educate the public, researchers and students on domestic and global reproductive health issues; and inspire and build the next generation of global reproductive health leaders at Duke and across the world.
The Center will focus on a range of global reproductive health issues, including safe motherhood, cervical cancer prevention, family planning, preventing and treating sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS prevention.
