Over the past two decades, the global health community has had a strong focus on tackling the biggest diseases. However, as we’ve seen with the Ebola epidemic, global health is about more than just one disease. It’s about health systems: infrastructure, patient trust in the delivery system, resilience, etc. Universities have a critical role to play in this area. Improving health systems requires truly multi-disciplinary work of scholars in business, finance, law, and health care, among other fields.
The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) is a university-wide entity focused on global health and aims to provide an intellectual platform to tackle the most intractable global health challenges. HGHI leverages the vast expertise across Harvard to promote advances in global health research and education.
