A Global Mission
The health challenges of today present complex cultural, economic, political and geographic issues. To tackle these challenges the global community requires scientific innovations and collaborations from among clinical, research, and educational professionals.
At the Center for Global Health, we stand at the center of this network - activating people and programs willing to improve the health and well-being of millions around the world. Our work includes implementation of clinical training programs, infrastructure development for the prevention and treatment of communicable diseases; and corporate consultation in global health education.
The Center for Global Health has five areas of focus: family and child health, community health system development (with an emphasis on eHealth), translational research (with an emphasis on vaccines, new therapeutics, and diagnostics), adult health (with an emphasis on non-communicable disease and occupational health), and education in Colorado and throughout the world.
