Student working on a research project.

SUNY Global Health Institute

With global health problems on the rise, an initiative is in order to equalize healthcare and establish worldwide well-being. The push for worldwide health not only increases the welfare of populations, it also assures economic and social sustainability across all nations. A healthy community leads to increased productivity and quality of life. From a global perspective, the concern for protection against epidemic threats that transcend national borders calls for immediate attention. Previous global health efforts have been established among several universities nationwide by individual departments. However, including cohesion through a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional approach will heighten the impact of current and future efforts. To aid in this holistic approach, SUNY is introducing the State University of New York Global Health Institute (SUNY GHI). The SUNY GHI is a multi-institutional resource focused on extending collaboration across SUNY campuses in an effort to expand awareness of global health issues and support education and research in these areas.
