Global Health Sciences
The Division of Global Health Sciences within the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) will bring together faculty who conduct population health research to improve health, safeguard communities against health-related threats, and promote health equity locally and globally. Faculty conduct research on population-based surveys, surveillance, and dissemination and implementation science. A goal of the Division is to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in global health training and research across departments, centers, and institutes in the School of Medicine.
The following objectives are designed to achieve this goal:
- Generate and apply high-quality scientific evidence to inform practices and policies;
- Foster global communities of faculty mentors or practitioners for the Master of Public Health (MPH) in Global Health and other training programs;
- Build the capacity of our international partners to sustain locally-led, quality health systems, research programs, and policies, and create continuous learning opportunities and new knowledge in global health sciences.
The Division aligns closely with the Division of Epidemiology and Prevention at the Institute of Human Virology and has a network of international partners who fight infectious and non-communicable diseases in resource-limited regions of the world.
