The mission of the Center for Global Health is to promote health equity issues on Northwestern University campuses and build upon the knowledge base in the field of global health through translational research and interdisciplinary education initiatives in both the US and globally.
The strategies by which the Center for Global Health intends to achieve its mission are three-fold:
- Identify and implement research and educational training programs in low and middle income countries (LMICs) that will strengthen the infrastructure and optimize care for life-threatening conditions such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, cancer, injury and cardiovascular/metabolic diseases.
- Coordinate and support the efforts of the Northwestern University faculty, fellows, residents and students, along with its international partners in implementing collaborative research studies and training opportunities that reflect a global approach to complex and shared medical needs.
- Raise public awareness about issues pertaining to global health through public events, advocacy, and education initiatives.
