Global Health

Global health is an area for study, research, and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. Greater investment in global health R&D spurs faster medical progress and enables breakthroughs for individual and public health; bolsters U.S. national security; and protects against future public health threats.

“Of all forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhumane.”

– Martin Luther King Jr., Civil Rights Activist & Nobel Prize Recipient
