"The COVID-19 global pandemic has tested the ability of the global health community to respond to the moment. Aside from the novel coronavirus impacting such a dramatic pressure to shift to innovative research, teaching and learning, global health faces many such pressures, including the rapidly shifting demographics of low- and middle-income countries, changing patterns in disease burdens, the role of technology and innovation, and the existential threat of climate change. A global approach to public health is more important than ever, and the GHI has been building international partnerships and capacity for over a decade. We are training the global health leaders of tomorrow to expect the unexpected and become well-equipped to lead us confidently toward uncertain possibilities."

- Iman Hakim, MBBCh, PhD, MPH, founder of the GHI
