The Nutrition and Global Health Program is a collaborative effort between the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health's Department of Nutrition and the Department of Global Health and Population, which takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and conducting research about nutrition in a global context. The group has a particular focus on the relationship between nutrition and infectious and noncommunicable diseases, nutrition and human growth and economic development, nutrition in humanitarian crisis situations, and also the dynamic interplay between epidemiologic, nutritional, and demographic transitions around the globe.
This program is dedicated to scientific research, teaching, collaborative work, and training in nutrition and global health studies at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. We are helping to train and prepare a new generation of health professionals dedicated to innovative problem solving and evaluation approaches to global health nutrition challenges, with emphasis on concerns pertaining to low- and middle-income countries.
