Global Health Research Portfolio
Since 2006, the UIC School of Public Health (SPH) Global Health Program has been committed to promoting health and well-being and reducing suffering worldwide. We lead the way in developing and testing interventions and programs to investigate causes of disease, improve health and deliver acceptable, feasible and affordable services. Underlying our efforts, we prioritize equity, compassion and idealism, as reflected in the SPH values statement. We are committed to understanding the influence of environmental, economic and political determinants on the health of populations globally and demonstrating a vision and philosophy of professional practice that addresses health equities and human rights worldwide.
