Princeton University’s Global Health Initiative generates the scholarship fundamental to health improvements, and educates students who will become leaders in the fields of health and health care. Its defining elements are a cross-disciplinary approach, hands-on field research, and a focus on the policy dimensions of global health.
The Initiative is coordinated by the Center for Health and Wellbeing, an interdisciplinary unit within the Woodrow Wilson School that fosters research and teaching on health, wellbeing, and health policy in both developed and developing countries.
Interdepartmental collaborations include:
- Multidisciplinary research projects that integrate classroom teaching and hands-on learning
- Certificate programs in global health and health policy
- Partnerships within and beyond the University
