Rutgers Giving Day
March 23, 2022
On Rutgers Giving Day, March 23, Rutgers Global Health Institute will be asking for your support to confront the rising burden of cancer and to continue assisting with the COVID-19 pandemic response in sub-Saharan Africa. The Botswana-Rutgers Partnership for Health is working to save lives, prevent disease, and improve health and health equity both within and beyond Botswana.
Every gift will go toward our joint work with the Government of Botswana to strengthen health systems, provide workforce development training, improve health information technology, and support pandemic preparedness and response. In cancer care and prevention, this work includes digital pathology initiatives, which will help speed up diagnoses; improving timely access to care for women with advanced-stage breast cancer; and applying the findings of the partnership’s recently completed national needs assessment. For COVID-19, we are collaborating on an ongoing distance learning initiative that has supported public health and clinical care since the start of the pandemic.
Please consider supporting our campaign on March 23.
