Global Health Informatics Institute
Developing Solutions at the Intersection of Science, Engineering and Global Health
Over the past 15 years international aid organizations have made large investments in health information technology (HIT) in many low- and middle-income countries. Sadly these investments have largely focused on improving the quality and timeliness of data for monitoring and evaluation purposes, in many cases relying on the severely limited pool of health workers to capture data. This has for the most part taken valuable time away from actual healthcare delivery.
Our Vision: Improved healthcare delivery resulting from evidence-based decision making around health investments
Mission: To train the next generation of biomedical informaticians and engineers using a unique service learning approach to develop interventions at the intersection of science, engineering and global health that address problems of global health importance and improve the delivery of healthcare for all.
Values: Fostering sustainability, Local innovation, Capacity Building, Honesty and Integrity, Data-driven, Respect
