Center Promotes International Research, Education, Healthcare

As the world becomes more interconnected, it is apparent that the major global health burdens facing our international community will require an integrated approach that addresses political, socio-economic, cultural, legal, biological, and medical issues. The primary goal of our regional and global activities at UNM is to form a collaborative network of multidisciplinary scientists to address the determinants of emerging patterns in global health.

The Center has a tripartite mission that includes promoting excellence in research, education, and clinical service activities. The objectives of the program are:

  • To support and enhance global and regional research activities at the University of New Mexico with a specific focus on a number of priority areas including, parasitic diseases, vector-borne diseases, HIV/AIDS, viral diseases, emerging infectious diseases, bio-safety and bio-security, health systems research, and environmental health.
  • To foster collaborative relationships between the University of New Mexico and international partner sites for research, education, and service activities.
  • To provide clinical training and research opportunities in Tropical and Global Health for graduate and medical students, and postdoctoral fellows.

The University of New Mexico Center for Global Health is housed in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of New Mexico. The Center for Global Health utilizes a multidisciplinary approach with involvement from faculty across a number of Departments, Schools, and Centers at the University of New Mexico, and our international partner sites.
