Global Health Series

The Global Health Initiative leverages the leadership of the Mailman School and its collaborating partners in the field of global health to showcase knowledge and innovation with respect to key global challenges. We seek to promote equity, effectiveness and evidence in policy and practice. 

As part of our efforts to fulfill these goals, GHI seeks to advance the collective insight and influence of the School and its partners by participating in a broad range of events. Visit the event archive page to browse past events.
