Bringing together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world, the Yale Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI) creates synergies in global health research, education and practice from departments throughout Yale. GHLI confronts global health issues with a multidisciplinary approach bringing together policymakers, practitioners and researchers to foster evidence-based problem solving and to debate critical issues in global health. Leadership and management experts, cardiologists, nurses, obstetricians, pediatricians, researchers, lawyers, economists, financial specialists, statisticians and more experts work together to achieve comprehensive solutions for projects around the world.
The GHLI develops leadership at Yale and around the world through education and research programs that strengthen health systems and promote health equity and quality of care. The Institute offers support to health care administrators and staff to improve the performance of health systems through leadership development, quality improvement programs, and health systems research. GHLI leadership development programs are guided by a model that promotes evidence-based solutions that can be scaled up and leadership that enhances individual and group capacity. The model encourages data-based decision-making and an applied learning experience. In relation to research, GHLI develops and disseminates research to improve health systems, in collaboration with international partners. The research thematic areas focus on examining: health determinants and outcomes; changing culture; health management; scale up and spread; positive deviance and mixed methods. More recently, GHLI has focused research on integrating social and medical services into a cross-disciplinary system that offers a holistic approach to improve the health and well-being of the population. GHLI is active in China, Ethiopia, Liberia, UK, US, South Africa, Rwanda and have multi-country programs
