Center for Global Health Proudly serving New Mexico and the World

Our Research

In the Center for Global Health. We are committed to advancing research, education and clinical training for improved health and development in resource-limited settings worldwide. The Center operates several international research projects.

The Center for Global Health brings together international partners with members of the New Mexico community. We offer bilateral exchange for research and training between UNM and our collaborative research sites abroad.

The collaborative activities offer health professionals the opportunity to form partnerships aimed at improving the public health challenges facing our global community.
