Campaign Goal
dollars raised

The first $4,200 will be matched by members of the Rutgers Global Health Institute Impact Council

More than ever in our lifetimes, it is clear that infectious diseases know no borders, and that “global health” affects us all. At Rutgers Global Health Institute, we have always been engaged in both local and international global health issues. 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. By bringing together expertise from across the university and working with partners beyond Rutgers, we create and implement long-term solutions to pressing global health challenges—from COVID-19 to inequities in cancer care and prevention.

Thanks To Our Recent Donors!


Rutgers Global Health Institute needs your support to help students and faculty confront urgent global health problems, locally and worldwide. The first $4,200 raised will be matched by members of the Rutgers Global Health Institute Impact Council.

Donations are applied to...

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, enable faculty to pursue new avenues of problem solving, and expand our on-the-ground efforts. We are providing COVID-19 education and recovery support for communities in New Jersey, coordinating COVID-19 distance learning for providers across Botswana, and building teams to enhance care in New Jersey’s urban poor communities. At the same time, we are helping Botswana to build sub-Saharan Africa’s first national, comprehensive cancer care and prevention program and to open a teaching hospital.

Why are donations necessary?

Donor support is needed now more than ever to move our work forward. We are building connections among faculty, students, alumni, partners, and communities to respond to global health threats and achieve a healthier world. We are committed to making an impact that is measurable in terms of lives saved, diseases prevented, and communities made stronger. Solving health problems in any society improves not only the health of its members, but also their ability to lead full and productive lives. Investing in global health is in all of our best interests.
