The Harvard Global Health Institute is committed to surfacing and addressing broad challenges in public health that affect large populations around the globe.  We believe that solutions that will move the dial draw from within and beyond the medicine and public health spheres to encompass design, law, policy, and business.  We do that by harnessing the unique breadth of excellence within fields at Harvard and by being a dedicated partner and convener to organizations, governments, scholars, and committed citizens around the globe.

The public health crisis on the U.S Border is escalating. Families live in unsanitary conditions as relief centers in Mexico swell to accommodate a growing migrant population. In an extraordinary, action-oriented discussion hosted by HGHI on November 7, health care professionals, academics, community organizers, and a journalist relayed their experiences and ongoing efforts to provide aid to migrants on the Mexican side of the border. Watch the event video to learn about how this system impacts children and families, why more transparency is needed, and what we can all do to mitigate the crisis.
