Who Is Involved?

The Alliance for a Healthier World is designed as a boundary-spanning endeavor. This involves linking researchers across disciplines; bridging interests of policy-makers, practitioners, civil society, vulnerable populations and academics; and networking with those working in the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business, international relations, engineering, computational and clinical sciences around a common theme of global health equity – good health and wellbeing for all.

JHU faculty, students and partners from the fields of medicine, nursing, public health, international relations, engineering, education, business, the social sciences, creative arts and bioethics work shoulder to shoulder during collaborative events, research grants and other knowledge sharing activities.
