Global Health Initiative

Mission Statement

The Global Health Initiative is a multidisciplinary university-wide effort to reduce health inequalities among underserved populations locally and worldwide through education, research, service and development of partnerships.

Global Health in Education, Research and Service

The GHI is distinguished by an integrative, overarching approach to the fundamentally interrelated problems of health and development.  One key advantage of the GHI is its ability to bring together the  social, cultural, and human dimensions of global health problems and their biomedical and technological elements under a single umbrella. Building upon Brown's expertise in both population analysis and infectious disease intervention, the Initiative offers high impact education, research, and service opportunities for students and faculty, and addresses issues of capacity, infrastructure, environment, and health care delivery to reduce the burden of disease in impoverished communities.
