About

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health was founded in May of 2006 as a unique collaboration between all of the Johns Hopkins University schools that harnesses the expertise of its dedicated health and medical professionals to address a myriad of global health challenges: HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, malnutrition, hepatitis and other threats to health, especially in developing countries. The Center pulls together Hopkins' extensive knowledge base to develop sustainable solutions that transcend the borders preventing good health throughout the world — borders between disciplines, languages, countries, governments, funding streams, drug availability, education, health care, and more. Hence, the Center's motto: Transcending borders for world health.

Mission and Vision

To facilitate and focus the extensive expertise and resources of the Johns Hopkins institutions together with global collaborators to effectively address and ameliorate the world's most pressing health issues.

"The Center is an unusual partnership that promotes collaboration throughout the University and uniquely positions Hopkins in the arena of global health. We coordinate and focus efforts against HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, malnutrition, diarrheal diseases, emerging chronic diseases, and other worldwide health threats, especially in developing countries, with the ultimate goal of eliminating these health threats."
