"Global health leaders start here."

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) works to reduce gaps in access to quality health care.

Students and faculty at DGHI work in more than 40 countries. Their research interests are as specific as malaria and as broad as health policy.

DGHI offers academic programs for undergraduate, graduate and professional students.

The institute also provides field research programs for graduate students and experiential learning for undergraduates. Students have worked in the rural Haitian town of Leogane, in the mountains of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and many points in between.
