Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research


The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research uses critical problem-solving approaches to pursue effectiveness, equity, and excellence in global health. We are global health leaders, researchers, practitioners, and students working at the interface between research, policy, and practice to address 21st-century global health challenges. We conduct research, teach, and form partnerships in three thematic research areas.

Planetary Health

Our research calls urgent attention to the health of human civilization, the state of the natural systems and ecological boundaries in which we live, and the interdependent relationships and dynamics between these interwoven processes.
