Program Mission

The Global Health Program builds capacity of health care at each of its established sites. Our goal is to establish longstanding Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Health Overseas Partnerships in Education Centers (HOPE Centers) through focusing our scholars and resources at each of the sites. The program seeks to develop partnerships of patient-centered care and models of teaching in low resource settings.

The program strengthens health care infrastructure and diagnostic skills at host settings, works to diminish “brain drain” from the developing world by building bilateral partnerships, and develops an effective response to the host country’s specific health care needs. The Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson HOPE Centers will be marked by resource support, enhanced clinical research, and medical education and exchange at each level of the continuing medical education process.
