Global Health

ASU tackles challenges in global health by addressing the systemic, social, economic, environmental, behavioral and cultural factors affecting individual and population health. ASU applies cross-disciplinary expertise to health challenges in the developing world, including health system strengthening, improving health supply chains, medical training, cultural and behavioral health, and biomedical research.

Featured capabilities

  • ASU’s School for the Science of Health Care Delivery, working in partnership with the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, develops new models for health financing and promotes data-driven decision-making to improve quality of care and population health while reducing per capita health care costs in countries such as Kenya, Uganda and Mozambique.

  • Modeling capabilities for infectious disease outbreaks, including Ebola, malaria, HIV/AIDS, Zika, and influenza, enable ASU to provide technical assistance to foreign governments and support national preparedness.
  • The Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium, part of ASU’s top five-ranked Supply Chain Management program, designs and improves health care supply chains and solves complex problems in humanitarian logistics. The consortium’s work — in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America — optimizes cost, clinical effectiveness, safety and sustainability across supply chains.
  • The Center for Global Health carries out novel research throughout the world on the ecological, cultural, institutional, historical and social factors affecting population health, water insecurity and stigmatized conditions.
  • Clinician and health care worker training platforms leverage ASU’s low cost, easily scalable online training platforms, which can be rapidly adapted to any geographic or cultural context in the world.
