Center for Global Health Priority Partnerships

Global partnerships exist to create a network of shared research capacity, collaboration and opportunities for discovery. 

Research partnerships are specific to and reflective of each region and institution, responsive to community needs and regional research priorities. Faculty leaders and partners determine the research and learning opportunities available at each site. Support from the Center for Global Health translates directly to the development of emerging researchers, professionals, and students who approach health with the global perspective required.
