Global Health Leadership Initiative

The Global Health Leadership Initiative (GHLI) generates cutting-edge research and high-impact educational programs in management, leadership and organizational performance. For over 10 years, GHLI has served as a leading academic partner, working in the US and around the world to promote effective leadership capacity and efficient management systems at the national, sub-national, community, and health facility level. We bring diverse teams together, engaging faculty, students, and practitioners from across disciplines in pursuit of ambitious healthcare goals.

Our leadership development programs are guided by a model of experiential learning that enhances both individual and group problem-solving capacity, develops effective relationships and organizational cultures, promotes use of data for decision-making, and generates evidence-based solutions that can be scaled up.
