Global Health and Justice

Global domestic violence and abusing mother earth concept with a violent bruised black eye on a human face with a world map as a symbol of injury to the environment and international law for the protection of women and human rights.

The YSPH faculty is on the front lines of global health response from outbreaks such as zika and ebola, to health systems, food insecurity, promotion of breastfeeding, and response and prevention of both infectious and chronic diseases. We also pursue the intersection of public health, justice and rights through the Global Health and Justice Practicum, Center for Climate Change and Health and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS. Global health research and practice cuts across all departments and disciplines, a philosophy also adopted by the school’s Global Health Concentration for Master of Public Health Students. The School’s research is enhanced by partnerships and collaborations from across the university, including the schools of law, management, medicine, forestry and environmental sciences, nursing and the graduate school.
