Supported by over $10 million in external funding annually, faculty members in the International Health Institute conduct transdisciplinary global health research across the spectrum. This work includes:
- Community-engaged randomized clinical trials among populations living with HIV and other chronic conditions;
- Mathematical modeling of infectious disease transmission and human migration patterns;
- Formative, qualitative and mixed methods studies with community partners, women, adolescents and children;
- Development, implementation, and rigorous evaluation of evidence-based interventions that promote easier access to care; and
- Long term capacity building in IHI partner countries through interdisciplinary applied training programs and focused mentorship.
Our research leverages longstanding partnerships with international collaborators; IHI faculty have been working with public and private institutions in South Africa, Bangladesh, Kenya, Mexico, Samoa and elsewhere for more than 30 years, and many IHI faculty hold joint appointments at these institutions.
Some of the active global health research projects held by IHI faculty are highlighted below (information is as of August 2023). A complete list of active research projects can be found on each IHI faculty members’ website.
