Global Health Pillars

This page will link you to UBC’s five global health “pillars”.

Within each of these pillars readers will find links to additional websites describing global health programs, training opportunities and projects across the UBC campus.

This site is meant to create greater awareness of UBC’s global health engagements, facilitate networking, identify synergies and strengthen our and our partner institution capacities to most effectively carry out curriculum development, training, research and service provision internationally.

“UBC recognizes the inherent power of international learning to reveal new worlds, open spirits, and change lives. The University builds on successes in international teaching, learning, research, and service to increase engagement at every level. International initiatives include research and institutional partnerships; community and overseas service; and international development ventures, all in regions strategically chosen to cultivate our strengths.”
