Global Health

Building Healthier Societies

In today’s ever-closer world, health policies have local, regional, and global implications. By facilitating collaboration and enhancing regional dialogue, the APRU Global Health Hub hosted by the University of Southern California, works to bridge health divides, promoting and protecting population health and meeting shared health challenges.

The Global Health Hub strives to meet the evolving needs of future Global Health leaders to better respond to the world’s rapidly evolving health trends. By leveraging the APRU network, the Hub develops innovative activities and opportunities that complement student learning – from case competitions to internships to collaborations with senior researchers from around the world.
