Stanford Global Health builds capacity within local communities around the world. We connect Stanford clinicians and researchers with partners in low- and middle-resource settings to solve complex problems in global health.
We connect Stanford clinicians to the world, working with local partners to expand clinical and research capacity, enabling them to solve their health problems, and enriching our research and practice. The Center emphasizes one emerging challenge at a time, currently the challenge of refugees and civilians in conflict. The Stanford Refugee Research Program, Himalayan Cataract Project, and other programs are designed to reverse blindness, bring cancer care to impoverished women, eliminate polio, prevent parasitic diseases, end gender-based violence and otherwise improve lives in low-resourced settings
