About Global Health and Diplomacy:

The Center for Global Health and Diplomacy (GHD) provides a rare intersection where high level political figures, health care workers and leaders in both the public and private sector can share and communicate their ideas. Global Health and Diplomacy wants to ensure that each of our global health stakeholders' vision becomes a reality. Global health issues are much too broad for any one doctor, health care worker or world leader to address alone. It is only through partnership that success can be achieved.

Global Health and Diplomacy is an international hub for health and diplomacy, GHD can tap into a diversity of global health stakeholders through their work with different governments and civil society leaders.

Global Health and Diplomacy reaches presidential offices in 55 countries through its online/ print publication and its international roundtable forums.
