We conduct interdisciplinary research that deepens the understanding of the interrelated factors that often drive chronic and infectious diseases.

We apply our knowledge to the development of strategies and technology that promote health and combat disease.

Fostering Interaction
We work across institutions, disciplines, geographies, and cultures to explore approaches to public health challenges that combine globally and locally produced knowledge.

Creating Opportunities
We enable health research and education in Latin America through alliance building, infrastructure development, and the recruitment and retention of researchers and educators.

Putting Knowledge to Work
We bridge the theory-practice gap by employing research and education beyond laboratories and classrooms to apply knowledge and assess its ability to improve people’s health and well being.

Internationalizing Education
We have created opportunities for international academic learning within the context of science-driven, community-based research initiatives.
