About the Global Health Program

The practice of global health embodies the principles of population health, taking responsibility for the health of whole communities and working to prevent disease by addressing the social injustices at the root of health inequities. Our multidisciplinary Global Health Program leverages tri-fold channels of education, research and service to cultivate 21st century leaders, improve overall health outcomes, and promote healthcare services for vulnerable populations in Central Texas and globally.

Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH)

The Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) is a global health partnership model that leverages the inherent power of academic medical centers to respond to health needs of local and regional populations. As a member of the AMPATH Consortium, UT’s Global Health program currently participates in AMPATH Kenya with Moi University in Eldoret, and spearheads the partnership with Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla for AMPATH Mexico.
