The Global Health Center at Washington University is now
co-funded by the Institute for Public Health along with the Department of Medicine which can help support, sustain and complement one another.
In today’s interconnected world, a disease threat anywhere is a disease threat everywhere. Through research, education and partnership, the center advances health equity in low-resource settings around the world.
Global health care is multi-disciplinary collaborative that relies on people from all areas to get engaged with global health programs. The involvement of the Department of Medicine will help bridge the two together to bring more awareness of global health needs and how those at the Department of Medicine can connect and enhance participation across the internal divisions as well as across the medical school and broader university.
