Institute for Global Health and Development
Schneider Institutes for Health Policy
The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University
To bring the best research in global health and development to leaders and policymakers to achieve results at scale with a focus on the poor and social justice.
A.K. Nandakumar, Ph.D.
BUILDING ON ITS IMPRESSIVE BASE of faculty, degree programs and policy work, the Heller School recently expanded its existing Schneider Institutes for Health Policy by investing in the establishment of The Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD). In collaboration with the Programs in Sustainable International Development, the IGHD provides a vibrant home and new resources for faculty, researchers and students who share an interest in international health and development. With a focus on identifying “actionable learning,” IGHD seeks to impact policy making by transferring and diffusing knowledge to those driving policy and implementing reform.
