UC Global Health Institute

Welcome to our new and refreshed website! Our goal is to bring you global health news, projects and announcements from across the UC system.

The UC Global Health Institute (UCGHI) is a system-wide initiative that stimulates, nurtures, and promotes global health research, education, and collaboration to advance the University's mission to improve the lives of people in California and around the world. UCGHI leverages the diverse expertise across the University to revolutionize training of future global health leaders and accelerate the discovery and implementation of transformative global health solutions.
