With its research capacity and culture of collaboration, Yale has the opportunity to develop the next generation of leadership in global health to dramatically accelerate both scientific breakthroughs and their impact on the health of people around the world. Global health at Yale is coordinated by an interdisciplinary Global Health Faculty Advisory Committee, which provides advice and guidance on potential research in global health and fosters relationships across campus to catalyze interdisciplinary research and education at Yale.
Supporting global health at Yale, the Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI) serves as both a catalyst for interdisciplinary projects and a nexus for exchange, collaboration, and leadership development. Since its launch in 2009, GHLI has worked with faculty from across campus on a variety of issues including mental health, early childhood health and development, non-communicable diseases, and human resources. In addition, GHLI produces novel evidence concerning health systems improvement and strategic thinking for health globally.
As a member of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health, Yale collaborates with other universities in sharing knowledge and expertise to address important global health challenges, while striving to improve human health across the globe, from discovery to impact.
