Collaborating across campus and around the world to improve global health

Health inequalities in low-income countries are driven by a variety of complex factors such as economics, climate, politics, and social disparities. The University of Michigan is home to some of the world's leading experts in these and other areas, many of whom are already engaged in global health efforts within their respective field. A transformational gift to U-M is providing opportunities to bring these experts together in new ways to develop sustainable, multi-disciplinary partnerships that ultimately improve lives around the world.
