The Center for Global Health and Development (previously known as the Center for Global Health and Diplomacy) was born to provide a rare intersection where high level political figures, health care workers and leaders in both the public and private sector can share and communicate their ideas. Global Health and Development wants to ensure that each of our global health stakeholders' vision becomes a reality. Global health issues are much too broad for any one doctor, health care worker or world leader to address alone. It is only through partnership that success can be achieved.

Global Health and Development is an international hub for health and diplomacy, GHD can tap into a diversity of global health stakeholders through their work with different governments and civil society leaders.

Global Health and Diplomacy reaches presidential offices in 55 countries through its online/ print publication and its international roundtable forums.

In 2017, CGHD recognized that the key to true sustainable global health initiatives rested on attracting private and public capital to these undertakings as reliance on grant or donor funding was insufficient to ensure the continuation of programs that millions of people had come to depend upon. CGHD therefore developed strong networks of both global health leaders, but also leaders in the public and private capital sectors and brought these disparate groups together to form partnerships that leveraged the different expertise of each to enable true sustainability. Thereafter, our center became known as the Center for Global Health and Development.
