Rutgers Giving Days is a once-a-year, universitywide fundraising event that inspires collective action and creates widespread impact. During this year’s event, which takes place on March 20 and 21, Rutgers Global Health Institute is raising funds in three areas:



Cancer Equity

When it comes to cancer, where you live can determine if you live. Worldwide, the overwhelming majority of cancer deaths are in low- and middle-income countries. In sub-Saharan Africa, cancer deaths are increasing at an alarming rate. This fund supports Rutgers Global Health Institute’s efforts to confront the cancer crisis in the sub-Saharan African country of Botswana. Already, this work has begun addressing cancer disparities in other countries in the region. With your help, we can save lives and transform cancer care in sub-Saharan Africa. The first $1,000 raised in support of this fund during Rutgers Giving Days will be matched by Richard Marlink, director of Rutgers Global Health Institute.

Give to Botswana-Rutgers Partnership for Health



Local Health Equity

At Rutgers Global Health Institute, working toward health equity is our primary purpose. That means addressing health inequities wherever they exist—including Rutgers’ home state of New Jersey. This fund supports the institute’s efforts to confront health disparities, including social and environmental determinants of health, in New Jersey’s low-income and minority communities. With your help, we can create a healthier New Jersey for all.

Global Health Equity

Every community should be healthy and thriving, but the reality is far from this ideal. All over the world, there are profound disparities in the conditions required for good health. At Rutgers Global Health Institute, we drive health equity solutions, locally and worldwide, through research, partnership, and capacity building. With your help, we can create a healthier world for everyone.
