Alliance for a Healthier World

The Alliance for a Healthier World is made up of Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, students, as well as partners from around the world who bring a focused attention to complex and systemic health inequities to create change built on multidisciplinary collaboration and deep engagement. They focus on three priority areas: Structural Determinants of Health, Common Goods for Health, and Health Equity Knowledge Management & Translation.

Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design

CBID's mission is the design and early-stage development of better solutions to challenging health care problems, and the training of talented new leaders who are effective health care problem-solvers.  Our metric of success is impact—of our ideas and our alumni—on health world-wide. Roughly half of CBID’s projects are focused on lower-resource health care settings. India is a primary location of CBID’s work. Locations for CBID projects in India have ranged from remote and rural areas like Bali Island in the Sunderbans to world-class advanced hospitals in Hyderabad and Dehli.

Center for Clinical Global Health Education

A center within the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, CCGHE conducts groundbreaking research on prevention and treatment for diseases of greatest burden in India, including HIV and tuberculosis, and on solving issues that complicate infectious disease care, including antimicrobial resistance, immune changes during pregnancy, malnutrition, substance use, access to health care, mental health, and chronic health conditions like diabetes and heart disease. CCGHE’s research ranges from genomics to community-based outreach strategies that improve patient health.

Center for Communications Programs

CCP has been working in India for more than 2 decades to affect social and behavioral changes that advance family planning, HIV/AIDS, non-communicable diseases, cancer awareness, WASH, nutrition, immunization, tobacco control, women and child health, early child development, and adolescent health.  

Center for Global Health

Founded in 2006, CGH is a collaboration among all Johns Hopkins University schools whose mission is to bring together the University health community to address global health challenges, particularly in low and middle income countries. Since its inception, CGH has included India among its focus areas.  

Center for Tuberculosis Research

Founded in 1998, the Johns Hopkins Center for Tuberculosis Research (CTR) conducts research —from genetic epidemiology of TB to population-level studies—that advances global policies on tuberculosis control. The research team comprises scientists from the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Nursing, and the Bloomberg School of Public Health with expertise across a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, diagnostics, drug development, clinical trials, pathogenesis and basic biology. Training and mentoring the next generation of scientists is central to CTR’s mission, thus students from medicine, public health, and nursing are engaged in CTR studies. Accounting for more than a quarter of the world’s tuberculosis burden, India is a country of focus for the CTR.

Maternal Child Health Center India

MCHCI focuses on enhancing women’s health, saving newborn lives, ensuring quality care, addressing vaccine-preventable diseases, meeting the needs of children who live in urban and rural areas that are marginalized and hard to reach, and strengthening public health capacity in India.
