The Center:
Stanford’s Center for Innovation in Global Health is committed to increasing wellbeing, world-wide. With nearly 200 faculty fellows from all seven schools within the university, we share knowledge, equip leaders and build interdisciplinary teams to address urgent global health challenges and achieve health equity. We focus our research and educational programs in three main areas - 21st century leadership, human and planetary health, and global health equity - and we partner with organizations around the world to ensure that Stanford's commitment to excellence extends well beyond our campus.
