Global Health Consortium

Global health means tackling the issues of health and prevention from various angles – conducting research that takes a holistic view of a situation and determines how various agencies can come together to help a community or a region.

The Global Health Consortium, part of the Department of Global Health at the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work, is a collaborative vision–both within the Americas and abroad–to ensure that individuals and communities have greater access to better health.
