The Harvard Global Equity Initiative (HGEI) is an interfaculty research program at Harvard University devoted to promoting more equitable development with a particular focus on the dimension of health. It addresses these issues by conducting research, engaging in policy discussions, and producing and disseminating evidence, education, and training with an interdisciplinary approach. The Initiative supports the next generation of scholars and researchers; young leaders who will bring a passionate and professional commitment to promoting equitable development. Being an interfaculty initiative it has the capacity to reach across the different schools of Harvard University and beyond.
HGHI Director of Medical and Professional Training Dr. Paul Farmer, HGHI Executive Committee member Dean Julio Frenk, and HGHI Steering Committee members Dr. Paula A. Johnson and Dr. Jennifer Leaning also serve on the HGEI Steering Committee.
