Broad Global Health Initiative

 

Together, we are working to establish deep institutional capacity across the Broad Institute community in the supporting elements that enable global health research. We aim to bring the full power of biomedicine, conscience, and community to bear on some of the biggest health challenges facing humanity.

Our goals include:

  • addressing the ethical and organizational issues related to working in lower-resource settings, 
  • building strong connections with international academic, government, and policy agencies, and 
  • deepening our institutional commitments to training and capacity building across areas of international collaboration, especially around issues of health disparities.
