Where will the next major impact in global health come from?
Welcome to the Arnhold Institute for Global Health

Many of the stressors that impact human health
are outside the purview of global health today.
These boys were born in a “temporary” refugee camp. Treat symptoms or systemic failures?
8.5 billion people want health care
systems that are tailored to their specific context.

We will broaden the understanding and purview of global health, making its hidden infrastructures visible so that new solutions can be developed and impact can be scaled. We will use meta-data to illuminate the context of individual lives, providing practitioners with the knowledge and agency to lead systemic change.
This is the work of the Arnhold Institute for Global Health.
We seek to improve the health of people and the communities they live in, both at home and abroad. To achieve this mission, the Arnhold Institute designs, accelerates and scales health care models that put people first and drive meaningful impacts on health and wellbeing. By combining innovative thinking with intellectual rigor, making maximum use of both human and technological resources, and giving equal weight to the demands of the present and the predicted needs of the future, we look to create successful models that transform global health.
