The Yale Global Health Initiative (GHI) was launched in May 2009 to cultivate and support global health activities at Yale. Reflecting its campus-wide reach, it is centered at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, part of the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies. The GHI aimsto foster innovative education programs, catalyze interdisciplinary faculty research, and advance international partnerships and leadership in global health.
For students, GHI provides coordination among outstanding educational offerings in global health and supports field based programs and internships across the university. For faculty, GHI catalyzes interdisciplinary research and advances international partnerships and leadership in global health. This is accomplished largely through the Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI), which brings together faculty, policymakers, and practitioners across disciplines to advance research, policy, and practice in global health at Yale and beyond.
GHI is a key component of the University’s internationalization strategy and central to the expansion of global health at Yale is the recruitment of additional faculty, development of new courses and tracks in key departments, and continued funding for internships and research.
