About Us

The Harvard Medical School Center for Global Health Delivery is addressing some of the most pressing health challenges globally, from infectious disease to mental health. By focusing on research, medical education, and training that promises to improve health care delivery systems and patient outcomes, our work creates both care delivery and research capacity where our affiliates live and work. The Center, established by Harvard Medical School in 2014, is a hub for policy formulation and analysis that is optimizing the last phase of health care delivery, ensuring that care providers have the systems and tools necessary to alleviate human suffering caused by disease. The Center does not provide patient care but focuses exclusively on research and training.

Where We Work

The Center aims to:

  • Promote research and education focused on the delivery of high-quality healthcare for communicable and non-communicable diseases.
  • Highlight and foster interdisciplinary, collaborative research and education around health care delivery with the Harvard Medical School Department of Global Health and Social Medicine and other Harvard faculty.
  • Create a hub for discussion, research, analysis, and policy formulation focused on health concerns of critical global importance.
