The Global Health Research, Education and Translation (GHREAT) Program at UC Irvine was established by the Program in Public Health following the successful NIH Fogarty International Center for Advanced Studies in the Health Sciences for a Global Health Framework Program. UC Irvine GHREAT is committed to promoting global health awareness and developing a comprehensive global health research, education, and training program. Since the establishment of GHREAT, demand from undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members to conduct global health research at UC Irvine and in foreign countries have grown rapidly. Affiliated faculty and students have received support from major organizations, including the National Institutes of Health, UC Global Health Institute, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Merck pharmaceuticals, and USAID. Visual communication of our innovative research activities on the human beings afflicted with disease and infirmity in developing countries is crucial to understand our impact on the world. This four-part series produced by Daniel A. Anderson shows how GHREAT projects are enhancing health and saving lives, one person at a time, by improving clinical care and HIV stigma reduction in Peru, providing free life saving heart surgery to impoverished children in China, collaborating with Chinese researchers to reduce disease transmission and creating new diagnostics and treatments for severe malaria in Thailand, China and Myanmar.
