Global Health Plans and Needs


The Global Health Institute (GHI) was established with start-up funds provided by the Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. One of the greatest challenges we face over the next several years will be acquiring the resources needed to sustain the activities of the GHI.

We are actively engaged in obtaining resources to support our efforts and there are many opportunities to support global health at the Zuckerman College of Public Health.

Development Goals


MEZCOPH has a small old house that is used for office spaces and it could be dedicated to the GHI. It is in a strategic location and just few steps from Drachman Hall (MEZCOPH building).
