Indiana University Center for Global Health


The IU Center for Global Health provides a unifying infrastructure for global health research based at Indiana University. The Center brings together IU graduate-level trainees and faculty from diverse schools and disciplines to form distinctive, interdisciplinary global health research teams who:

  1. Develop novel global health research strategies and designs that transcend the methods of any one discipline to pursue innovative transdisciplinary methods, new knowledge and novel perspectives.
  2. Use these methods to explore factors that are essential elements of effective, sustainable health systems.
  3. Disseminate new global health research findings in dialogue within international communities of research and policy-making. The Center will increase global health research capacity at IU, enhancing the ability of IU to be competitive for current global health research funding that seeks innovative solutions to critical global health challenges.
