Section for Global Health Collaborations

NYU Langone’s Section for Global Health in the Department of Population Health collaborates with the following global and local partners to conduct research and train future leaders.

New York University College of Global Public Health

We work with the NYU College of Global Public Health to prepare undergraduate and graduate students to pioneer solutions that improve the health of populations and advance health equity around the world. We help lead training programs in cardiovascular research and in implementation science at the College of Global Public Health.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the Ghana Health Services

We work with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the Ghana Health Services—that nation’s primary provider of population healthcare services—to successfully implement evidence-based interventions aimed at improving population health in the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions. Through this partnership, we have published research about using task-shifting strategies to manage hypertension in Ghana.

Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital

We work with Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in partnership with AMPATH Kenya to implement evidence-base interventions aimed at strengthening the health system and improving population health in Western Kenya. Through this partnership, we have published research on intergrated care for cardiovascular risk reduction, leveraging digital health for global chronic disease management and integrating income generation with group medical visits for hypertension and diabetes.

Jhpiego

We work with Jhpiego to support their global initiative on breast health to complement its decades-long programs in cervical cancer prevention (CECAP). This initiative aims to improve women’s access to quality care for breast health globally. Through this partnership, Dr. Ophira Ginsburg provides strong guidance and input to accelerate our current efforts, co-pursue appropriate research activities and build our internal capacity.
