Thirty-one DGHI-affiliated authors—including faculty, staff and alumni—recently shared new discoveries on a variety of global health topics in peer-reviewed publications.
The Center for Policy Impact in Global Health (CPIGH), based in the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) is currently hosting two global health policy fellows, Addis Kassahun Mulat and Daniel Victor.
In 2005, Kathryn Whetten, director of the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research (CHPIR), and her colleagues set out to examine predictors of physical and emotional well-being, cognitive development, relationship outcomes and achievement outcomes for a cohort of more than 3,000 orphaned and separated children (OSC) living in five low-income countries (Cambodia, India, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania).
Seventeen DGHI faculty members, staff and affiliates recently shared new discoveries in peer-reviewed publications. Topics include mental health, obesity, non-communicable diseases, mHealth, implementation science and more.
In rural Ethiopian communities threatened by climate change, communities with high levels of trust between members are more likely to work together to adapt to changes and are less likely to take individual action, a new study finds.
Twenty-five DGHI faculty members, staff and affiliates recently shared new discoveries on a variety of global health topics in peer-reviewed publications.
Orphans living in families are at least as vulnerable to sexual and physical abuse and other traumas as orphans living in institutions, a new study finds. This research challenges the commonly held perception that institutional care puts children at higher risk for experience of trauma than family-based care.
Tewodros “Teddy” Rango Godebo, a postdoctoral researcher at Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment, has received a coveted NIH K99/R00 award, also called the “NIH Pathway to Independence Award.”
Orphaned children in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) face a high risk of trauma, with physical and sexual abuse being by far the most prevalent traumatic events. New research co-led by Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) professor Kathryn Whetten shows that orphaned boys in these settings are just as likely to experience abuse as girls.
