Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health
The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health was opened in 2015 at York University in Canada. Funded by a $20m donation from the Foundation, the Institute works with a network of local and global partners to reframe the ways high and low income countries collaborate to meet the most pressing global health challenges of our time.
York University was the first Canadian university to launch Global Health BA and BSc programmes, centred on global health policy and governance.
Special areas of focus for the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health are social determinants of health, global eHealth, disease modelling, disability studies, human rights, refugees, indigenous peoples and the environment.
The Foundation’s original support has opened the door to further funding – both public and private sector – for York’s Faculty of Health.
