The Institute for Global Health at the University of Southern California is a collaborative and multidisciplinary hub with a focus on the health disparities and inequalities that impact our world.

University-wide and driven by excellence in research, education and action on global health, the institute aims to dynamically address those issues that are too complex to have a natural home with any single researcher, department or school. We aim to connect the students, faculty and thought leaders working in global health throughout USC and beyond, and facilitate the exchange of ideas, projects and collaborations across disciplines. With strategic partnerships around the globe, we provide opportunities for students at every level to experience and understand the world’s pervasive health challenges and to consider new ways to address them.

Positioned in Los Angeles, among the world’s most diverse cities and a major center of the Pacific Rim, USC fosters an entrepreneurial environment to propel bold, new solutions for the most intractable challenges facing society. In line with USC’s legacy of multidisciplinary research and education, the Institute for Global Health blends health, science, policy and human rights with law, business, communications, social work—and more to—educate future and current global health leaders, promote innovative research collaborations and ensure evidence informs policy and practice.
