The Center abides by the mission statement of Harvard Medical School, which is “to create and nurture a diverse community of the best people committed to leadership in alleviating human suffering caused by disease.” By optimizing the last phase of health care delivery, The Dubai Center has generated an ecosystem for change, training global health practitioners and facilitating the continued production of knowledge in specific disease areas.

We rely on a model of accompaniment; both our Cooperative and Faculty Award programs pair investigators from the Center’s region with experienced Harvard faculty to provide support for health care delivery projects. Through funding and resources, the Center’s awardee pairs collaborate to conduct, publish, and apply high quality research to the last phase of care delivery, all while benefiting from mutual learning that shapes future efforts. Together, we’re not only innovating groundbreaking health care delivery solutions, we are also equipping each other with tools for continued discovery.
