Global Health and the Environment in Africa
Through the Global Health and the Environment in Africa project, the University of Minnesota has a unique opportunity to impact food security and health.
A recent award from the United States Agency for International Development will support teams of faculty from six U of M colleges working in West and East Africa to build capacity for animal health. The project has the potential to unite the health and environmental sciences at the U of M into a coherent global health program.
The IonE Discovery Grant will be used to leverage the USAID investment, broadening the scope of collaborative efforts, supporting student travel programs and providing matching funds for future grant opportunities, among many other impacts.
