Global Health Design Collaboration

We are undergraduate and graduate students interested in engineering, medicine, and anthropology who work in design teams to address challenging global health issues. Our Mission is to apply user-centered design methods to contextualize and solve unmet healthcare needs in low and middle-income countries. We ultimately aim to make our solutions available to those in need.
