Harvard Medical School, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine
The Department of Global Health and Social Medicine applies social science and humanities research to constantly improve the practice of medicine, the delivery of treatment, and the development of health care policies locally and worldwide. Major efforts include developing the science of global health delivery implementation; advancing equity in health care delivery; and educating students and researchers on biosocial determinants of disease, health care delivery, and responsible practice of medicine. The Department is the central structure to help organize global health activities, especially medical education experiences, at Harvard Medical School.

University of Global Health Equity
Building on Partners in Health's three decades of delivery experience, the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is an innovative university focused on the delivery of health care. Launched in 2015, the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery (MGHD) is the University of Global Health Equity’s (UGHE) flagship academic program. By redefining the movement for health equity and challenging students to not only create, but to demand, sustainable solutions for service delivery, UGHE is building a new generation of health leaders. Watch as faculty and students describe what makes the MGHD experience unique and how UGHE is harnessing the potential of young global health leaders in Rwanda and across the world.

Health and Human Rights Journal
Health and Human Rights is an international journal dedicated to scholarship and praxis that advance health as an issue of fundamental human rights and social justice. It seeks to provide a forum for academics, practitioners and activists from public health, human rights and related fields to explore how rights-based approaches to health can be implemented in practice. In so doing, it contributes to fostering a global movement for health and human rights.

We need create and use tools for networking to exchange knowledge and practices at all levels of the health sector. This is key to making decisions and accelerating progress in health and development.
