• The global health program is dedicated to promoting global research that drives better policy, insight that creates context for health professionals, drivers for better health outcomes and a community of health on campus. Our goal in all that we do is to have a true global impact.
  • We are committed to producing and supporting serious research into health and health policy, including its determinants & patterns, drivers & consequences, emerging technologies and interventions. 
  • The Global Health Program inspires insight at the intersection of policy & social science, the humanities, engineering and the sciences. Our aim is to think beyond the discipline to create new insight.
