Yale Institute of Global Health

Yale’s Institute for Global Health (YIGH) is the focal point for global health at Yale, bringing together expertise and knowledge from across campus with partners around the world. The mission is to improve and accelerate health and health equity for people worldwide through high-impact research, as well as education, service, and advocacy.
Yale has a compelling legacy in the global health arena working within health systems and countries on a range of scientific and capacity-building projects. Yet, as the determinants of health are better understood as more complex and interconnected, it is increasingly clear that improving health requires interdisciplinary expertise and deep collaboration.
YIGH leverages Yale’s preeminence in research, teaching, and clinical care for solving major global health problems. With Yale School of Nursing’s participation, YIGH is developing signature programs in partnership with colleagues around the world, including Yale Schools of Medicine and Public Health, that improve health and reduce preventable deaths.
