Rutgers Global Health Institute

All over the world and right here in New Jersey, there are tremendous disparities in health care and in the conditions that make good health possible. Addressing these disparities requires an understanding of the factors that affect health: climate, employment, housing, public safety, social status, water quality, and more. Rutgers Global Health Institute brings together expertise from across the university and works with partners beyond Rutgers to improve the health of vulnerable populations. We promote health equity by working with communities to create and implement comprehensive, long-term solutions to pressing global health challenges.

Your gift will help meet emerging needs in global health education, research, and service. This support can create opportunities for students to participate in the institute’s work, provide seed funding for faculty to pursue new avenues of problem solving, and expand the reach of our on-the-ground efforts. We are working to provide life-saving surgery and cancer care in developing countries; build resiliency in communities impacted by disasters; combat infectious disease epidemics; help New Jersey’s underserved populations access the health care they need; and confront climate change and its impact on human health.
