Major health crises like the cholera epidemic in Haiti, maternal and infant deaths in India, and HIV/AIDS in Botswana are the focus of the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Global Health.
With more than 60 programs in 40 countries—and counting—we deliver resources and expertise to vulnerable communities around the globe. Our sponsoring organizations know they are partnering with experts who are leaders in their fields with track records of success.
Resources and Expertise Yield Far-reaching Results
With more than 60 programs in 40 countries—and counting—we deliver resources and expertise to vulnerable communities around the globe.
The initiatives of the Center for Global Health are designed for long-term impact. Here are a just few examples of our global health sponsorship programs and opportunities:
- Mass General is working alongside Partners in Health to build a cutting-edge research and treatment facility in Haiti to combat the deadly epidemic of diarrheal illness. Improved diagnostic testing, surveillance and clinical care are at the program’s core.
- The Alliance for a Brighter Future for Babies in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India, is fighting to reduce infant and childhood mortality. The expanded program will address children’s nutritional needs so they can grow, thrive and achieve their cognitive potential.
- Our work to improve the health of HIV-infected pregnant women and their infants in Botswana has resulted in new treatment guidelines from the World Health Organization. New funding will expand research and support for local nurses and physicians.
Furthering Progress in Key Programmatic Areas
Our global health sponsorship programs and opportunities fall into three programmatic areas. They are transforming the lives of women worldwide through our Women in Global Health initiatives; leading the global community’s disaster response efforts by creating professional standards and curricula; and developing innovative, low-cost products for nations in need through the Consortium for Affordable Medical Technologies.
