this is all of us making a difference in global health
AS WE CLOSE OUT 2017-2018, I want to thank all of you, faculty, staff, students, colleagues, and friends, for being part of the Global Health Institute (GHI) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Together, we are working toward a more just, sustainable, and healthy world.
Across campus and the planet, we work together to tackle health challenges. Many of you pursue projects supported by GHI and nurture programs you have established because you believe in global health for all. This is the essence of the Wisconsin Idea—the UW community sharing knowledge and learning from colleagues and communities in Wisconsin and across the planet.
You are vital to global health: Supporting our work. Inspiring students. Challenging all of us to find creative answers for health, today and tomorrow. This 2017-2018 report celebrates all of you and what you do.
