Global Health

The world faces significant threats to human health. Climate change, an unprecedented crisis of Covid-19 and a rapidly growing array of non-communicable diseases are impacting vulnerable communities across the globe.

At the FIU Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work in Miami, Florida, the Department of Global Health centers its work around research, innovation, and capacity strengthening to help support people affected by today’s global health challenges.

The Department of Global Health brings together collaborators from academia, government, the private sector and beyond to provide scientific solutions to the world’s population. The Department’s research and academic activities will also complement FIU’s new Population Health Institute to propel collaborative research on addressing health inequities, and to enhance capacity strengthening activities, both locally and globally.
