Global Health and Humanitarian Opportunity Program

Creating Sustainable Health and Humanitarian Solutions Across the Globe

Every day across the globe, dynamic interactions among social science, physical science, and humanitarian efforts affect the health and well-being of individuals and regional communities.  By improving the success of these interactions, the Global Health and Humanitarian Opportunity program aims to create significant gains in global health that enable long-term societal progress and sustainability.

Program Description

This program is designed to create and support ventures with diverse funding opportunities by operating through a public-private, multidisciplinary “incubator” based structure that promotes diverse, interdisciplinary interactions and partnerships between individuals and groups from the university, public, and corporate sectors.
