Mission • Vision

The Global Health Institute is a catalyst, convener and change agent supporting theme-based initiatives to improve the health of humans, animals and the planet. Our work is guided by a global health ethic that calls us to improve health today while ensuring that resources are available to provide health for all tomorrow.


We embrace a new global health ethic that fosters deeper understanding of the complex determinants of health and disease for people, animals and ecosystems. In working locally and globally, we uniquely apply research and education both within and across disciplines, advancing health today and ensuring well-being for the future.


Equitable and sustainable health for people, animals and ecosystems—across Wisconsin and the world.
