Global health has achieved dramatic reductions in preventable illness, injury and death. But there is still much to do. Our faculty, staff, and students are at the forefront of the global push towards the world’s Sustainable Development Goals. We are looking forward and acting now to eliminate poverty, inequity, and preventable illness and death by 2030.
