The Center for Global Health

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 wellbeing 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. Read a message from our Director.

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)
  • Education in Colorado and throughout the world​



At the Center for Global Health, service is a core pillar in our vision to work with under-resourced communities throughout the world for better healthcare, better health, and a better future for children and their families. 

We are committed to ethical and effective collaboration with the communities we serve and with our many partners across the world to achieve global health equity and justice.
