Our Impact

Over the past 10 years, our global health work at the University of Minnesota has spanned the globe—from maternal health research on the shores of Lake Victoria to strengthening the healthcare workforce of Afghanistan.  

Our education, research, and capacity-building efforts continue to impact countless communities while also shaping the minds of future global health researchers, practitioners and leaders. Through our seed grants, travel awards, and mentorship programs, we are able to give faculty and students the opportunity to form valuable international collaborations. These partnerships are translating ideas into cutting-edge practice in the field at research sites on 4 continents. 

Building on this foundation, the center today is at the forefront of a transition in global consciousness, recentering meaningful community engagement at the heart of our research and training  efforts. Partnerships with local communities focus on building lasting relationships and nurturing the next generation of global health leaders.
