Global health is concerned with improving health and well-being across diverse populations, particularly those in which poor health outcomes are concentrated. The principles, approaches and tools used in global health are applicable across low-, middle-, and high-income countries.
Most of our faculty who do research and teach in the global health degree programs are particularly concerned with health policies, programs and services in low- and middle-income country settings.
Our global health faculty engage in applied research, using multi-disciplinary research methods. They engage with partners in governments, researchers and NGOs in countries around the world, including Uganda, Malawi, Pakistan, Nepal, Colombia, India, Brazil, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines, Australia, U.S., and the U.K.
