In 2007, Brown began to focus increasingly on International activities, establishing the Internationalization Initiatives with a series of working groups convened to review current activities and propose future directions in several domains. The Global Health Working Group convened to suggest ways in which research, curricular and service activities at Brown and our partnering institutions in less developed countries could be strengthened.
Through these efforts, we expect global health research and training opportunities to increase at Brown.
At the present time, numerous courses related to global health are offered at Brown.
For many undergraduates and graduate students, the initial exposure to courses in global health is PHP1070, Burden of Disease in Developing Countries.
