The Office of Global Health at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison School of Pharmacy exists to foster sustainable educational, service and research collaborations with partner institutions domestically and internationally in order to define and promote the roles of pharmacists in improving public health at home and abroad. Contributions to the Curtis A. Johnson Global Health Fund in Pharmacy provide support for UW-Madison pharmacy students, post-graduate fellows and faculty to work with others worldwide to fulfill this mission.

The fund is named in honor of Curt Johnson (1947-2011) who served as a professor in the School of Pharmacy and Department of Medicine (Nephrology) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1978-2004 and as associate director of the School of Pharmacy’s Office of Global Health from 2008-2010. In the late 1990s, through Curt’s leadership, the School of Pharmacy became an engaged partner in the U.S.-Thai Consortium for the Development of Pharmacy Education in Thailand, which continues today. He also developed the first international advanced practice rotation for UW pharmacy students in Ecuador (2006) and international pharmacy student exchange program with Thailand (2007). Because of this fund, international collaborations have been established in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, Asia and Central America.
