    NIOSH continued its long-standing support of global occupational health research and training by cosponsoring the NIH Fogarty International Center Global Environmental and Occupational Health Hubs. This program supports institutions in low- and middle-income countries that serve as regional hubs for collaborative research and training in responding to high-priority environmental and occupational health threats.
