The Duke Global Health Innovation Center’s mission is to study and support the scaling and adaptation of innovations and related policy reforms to address critical health challenges worldwide. GHIC links global health, health policy, and health innovation efforts across Duke University.

To further this mission, GHIC:

  • supports research, analysis, education, training, capacity building, and advocacy to curate and scale health and healthcare innovations globally
  • discovers and integrates resources across global health, innovation, policy making and reform to develop and strengthen multi-disciplinary approaches that support adaptation of innovations across health systems and countries
  • identifies and facilitates implementation of policy, regulatory, and financing reform to enable scaling and adaptation of health innovations
  • partners with Innovations in Healthcare, a Duke-affiliated non-profit that works with nearly 100 healthcare entrepreneurs in 92 countries and provides capacity-building training and consulting to healthcare systems throughout the world

The GHIC shares learnings and resources through peer-reviewed manuscripts, white papers, knowledge products, webinar series, podcasts, in-person workshops, and virtual forums. Our organization is also active in training next-generation physicians and public health professionals through post-doctoral fellowships, one-on-one mentoring, internships, courses in health entrepreneurship, and opportunities for field work.
