Emory University announces new Global Health Institute

Emory University announced today a new Global Health Institute that will help address the most pressing health challenges around the world, particularly in poorer nations. Jeffrey P. Koplan, MD, MPH, Emory vice president for academic health affairs and former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will direct the new Institute, which builds on Emory's history of global health partnerships.

Emory's initial budget for the new Global Health Institute is $110 million, based on currently identified resources, including $55 million from the University's strategic plan and building funds and $55 million in investment from other sources including Emory schools and departments, foundations, and private and governmental partners. The Institute also will continue to seek additional outside investment for its support and expansion. The funds will support new global health faculty, programs and partnerships.

"The new Global Health Institute, as part of Emory's strategic plan, will help us carry out our vision and commitment to positive transformation in the world," said Emory President James Wagner. "The Institute will bring together and extend the impact of Emory's strong public health work locally and around the world."

"By making this considerable investment in global health, Emory University will broaden and deepen its capacity in fields as varied as infectious diseases, chronic diseases, vaccine and drug discovery, leadership development, health economics, and workforce development," said Michael M.E. Johns, MD, Emory executive vice president for health affairs and CEO of Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center.

The Global Health Institute will enhance Emory's existing strengths in global health, with the specific intention of creating and enhancing partnerships with governments and academic and private institutions in the most needy parts of the world. The Institute also builds on Emory's successfu
