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 trifold channels of education, research and service to cultivate 21st century leaders, improve overall health outcomes, and promote health equity for vulnerable populations in Central Texas and globally.
Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH)
The Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) is an academic global health partnership model that leverages the inherent power of academic medical centers to be responsive to population health needs. The Global Health Program currently collaborates with Moi University in Kenya and is currently working on creating partnerships in Mexico.
