Centers and Initiatives

Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis (CIDMA)

CIDMA optimizes the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of vaccination strategies and other health interventions by quantitatively evaluating and informing public health policies. To achieve this goal, we apply interdisciplinary mathematical modeling approaches to address public health challenges, both nationally and globally, for a wide range of infectious diseases, including HIV, TB, influenza, rabies and dengue.

Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA)

CIRA supports innovative, interdisciplinary research that combines behavioral, social and biomedical approaches, focused on the implementation of HIV prevention and treatment and the elimination of HIV disparities.

Yale Climate Change and Health Initiative (CCHI)

CCHI utilizes Yale's multidisciplinary expertise and global reach to train future leaders, provide a comprehensive educational program, and catalyze innovative research, all to address one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century.

Conflict, Resilience, and Health Program

The Conflict, Resilience, and Health Program is an interdisciplinary group that works to build resilience and health in communities afflicted by armed conflict or structural violence. Led by Professor Catherine Panter-Brick, this program engages with academics, practitioners, and policy makers to promote innovations in global health research and to evaluate resilience-building interventions.

Equity Research and Innovation Center (ERIC)

ERIC aims to develop and disseminate evidence-based models to narrow health and healthcare inequity gaps as well as to provide research support infrastructure for Yale faculty and affiliated community-based organizations.

Global Health Equity Scholars Program

The Global Health Equity Scholars Program supports one-year research training of post and predoctoral fellows at 31 partnering international institutions. The goal of the program is to generate a new and young cadre of global health researchers, educators and professionals from diverse disciplines to address health needs and promote social equity. A major focus of the program is the health challenges which have emerged due to the rapid growth of slum settlements in both urban and rural settings of low and middle-income countries.

Global Health Justice Partnership

The Global Health Justice Partnership, hosted by Yale Law School and Yale School of Public Health, was established in 2012 to promote interdisciplinary, innovative, and effective responses to global health disparities. It is a transformative collaboration that integrates different fields in order to make critical policy interventions.

Global Health Leadership Initiative (GHLI)

GHLI develops leadership through education and research programs that strengthen health systems and promote health equity and quality of care. 

InnovateHealth Yale

InnovateHealth Yale is a group of Yale faculty, program directors, and students focused on using the principles of entrepreneurship and innovation to promote health and prevent disease.

Uganda Initiative for Integrated Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (UINCD)

UINCD is a research partnership that is working to find better ways to address chronic diseases.

Yale Network for Global Non-Communicable Diseases

We are next generation investigators — junior Yale faculty who have joined together to form a transdisciplinary, collaborative, on-campus network that addresses the global scourge of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). Our work in research, advocacy, policy, implementation, and education spans cultures and communities across the world- from here in New Haven to Asia, the Pacific Islands, and East Africa.
