The Harvard Global Health Hub

The Harvard GH Hub is a searchable, easy to navigate online platform designed specifically for those looking to know more about Harvard’s diverse global health community and its ongoing initiatives. This one-stop-shop allows students, Faculty, and staff to explore and stay up to date on the latest global health courses, programs, events, and opportunities across Harvard. By illuminating Harvard’s in-house global health expertise and collating opportunities across a broad range of centers, programs, initiatives, and institutes, the GH Hub aims to break down silos and simplify efforts for meaningful collaboration and engagement across hospitals, schools and departments.
