The International Health Institute (IHI) was established in 1988 to develop, promote, and coordinate the international health activities of Brown University faculty and students committed to global community engagement. IHI faculty have established research collaborations with institutions in low and middle income countries and developed supervised research experiences for Brown University undergraduate, graduate and medical students with our foreign partners. The IHI's mission is to apply interdisciplinary perspectives to research and training to improve the health of populations in developing countries.
