Innovating global health solutions through transdisciplinary research and training
Much of the developing world lives in poverty and with poverty comes global public health risks. Preventable diseases such a tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and diarrheal disease kill millions of people every year, with women and children most at-risk. Health inequity perpetuates mortality and the burden of disease. Addressing the challenge requires research and action across disciplines with a focus on population health, with widespread implications for world economies, international development, commerce, and government policy making.
The Center for Global Public Health (CGPH) provides transdisciplinary, experiential research, training, and learning opportunities for students and faculty to improve human health worldwide. We focus on the most vulnerable populations and communities with the greatest health inequities. Our goal is to be a platform to translate global health research into solutions for public health action at Berkeley and beyond.
