The Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health (VIGH) aims to discover outcomes that reduce the burden of disease in communities throughout the world through biomedical research. Research at the VIGH relies on multidisciplinary approaches to identify and address challenges that impact health outcomes, including social and behavioral factors, barriers to delivery of care, and translating study results into practice. VIGH focus areas include:
University-wide Research in Global Health
The contributions of many individuals and organizations whose partnership and support have helped VIGH become established in strong academic research and training programs, and pragmatic community partnerships are recognized through several long-standing, grant-supported collaborations with international institutions and U.S. academic research universities.
These relationships foster collaborations that allow research to become a reality through multidisciplinary approaches to the establishment of sustainable, scalable health and development programs in resource-limited settings.
