The Road Map to Global Health

Accelerating change in health outcomes

UW Medicine exists for one reason: to improve the health of the public. For everyone, everywhere. We are creating a road map to tackle the world’s most pressing health threats.

The UW Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation is the world’s largest resource for studying health disparities and the global burden of disease, accelerating our understanding of where interventions are needed most. And the Department of Global Health, a collaboration with the UW School of Public Health, brings together colleagues from more than 440 projects in 137 countries to ensure that health is a human right.

Investment is required to make the world a better, healthier place. The movement starts with UW Medicine.
