The vision of the Global Health Initiative is to foster a community at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign which engages global health issues through interdisciplinary problem-solving. This is accomplished through:

  • Providing a nucleation point for the Illinois interest in global health
  • Training the next generation of global health leaders: Illinois students
  • Promoting interdisciplinary collaboration among Illinois researchers
  • Exploring a model for collaborative international global health problem solving
