Global Health Research
What is Global Health?
Global health is a multidisciplinary and collaborative field that embraces transnational research and action to promote health equity for all. The field of global health includes socioeconomic, environmental, and cultural factors which may directly or indirectly affect health matters.
The Office of Global Affairs (OGA) is part of the HHS Office of the Secretary. OGA promotes the health of the world's population by advancing HHS's global strategies and partnerships and working with U.S. Government agencies in the coordination of global health policy, security and initiatives.
The Global Health Initiative (GHI) strategically combines the capacities of U.S. Government agencies to address global health challenges that threaten lives at home and around the world. By supporting all U.S. Government agencies to function with common goals – governed by GHI principles – across the more than 70 countries where we work, the United States is maximizing investments to protect the American people, advancing our core values, and saving more lives.
