Frequently Asked Questions

What is Global Health?
Why should someone study Global Health?

As the world becomes more culturally, economically, and politically integrated, the need to understand international health systems, remove health disparities, and prevent the spread of infectious diseases becomes all the more pertinent. Health issues, such as HIV/AIDS and clean water and sanitation, directly impact a country’s development. Thus, students and faculty of many disciplines are researching, designing, and implementing programs that incorporate global health into international development.
