Where is it located?

The core center will be based at the University of São Paulo (USP), the highest ranked University in Latin America. Two other major partners with a strong tradition in training and health research will join USP in this effort, the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (UPCH) in Peru and the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama (INCAP) in Guatemala. These are centers of the Global Health Alliance for Chronic Diseases.  

In an effort to disseminate the training capacity two upcoming regional research sub-centers in Ecuador and Colombia would also join the training network.  

This network will be supported by strong academic centers in the fields of interest in the US and Europe. Other institutions involved are: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Northwestern University, Puget Health Cooperative, University of Washington, University of Perth, University of Palo Alto, and Columbia University.

There is strong connection with all the other hubs involved in this initiative: PAM-D (Nigeria, South-Africa, Ghana, Kenya and Liberia), AFFIRM (Sub-Saharan Africa), SHARE (India & Pakistan), RedeAmericas (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Columbia).
