vision & mission
Innovation through collaboration to improve the health of the world’s communities.
The Triangle Global Health Consortium’s mission is to establish North Carolina as an international center for research, training, education, advocacy and business dedicated to improving the health of the world's communities. We seek to engage academic, governmental, business and nonprofit organizations in this collaborative effort.
SERVING OUR MEMBERS
We help organizations and individuals discover and create the connections they would have otherwise not established. The Consortium is the source for:
Partnering for growing business. Through our technical sharing and networking events, we aid organizations in forging alliances for global health innovation to win new projects or bring in new revenue through global initiatives.
Access to specialists. Through our knowledge-sharing offerings, forums, and networking events, we help connect people who have specialized expertise to organizations, individuals, and projects with corresponding needs.
Access to new talent. By connecting our organizations and their staff and students, we put the Triangle’s exceptional talent to use regionally and globally. We also help prepare the next generation of global health leaders.
Access to global health best practice. Through our knowledge sharing and technical events, we help the global health community identify and share best practices and demonstrate how best practices can unite traditionally unilateral sectors.
Economic growth for the Triangle and North Carolina. In promoting the Triangle and N.C. as an epicenter of global health worldwide, we help attract new talent, investment, and organizations to the region.
Consolidated voice for advocacy. By combining our members’ voices into one common voice for global health, we convey more power, clout, and credibility with other businesses, governments, and communities regionally and worldwide.
what is global health?
We define global health as an area for study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving health equity for all people worldwide.
Global health issues transcend boundaries and require collective solutions that emphasize improving health, reducing disparities, and protecting against global threats.
North Carolina organizations work in over 185 countries - including our own - to address these complex issues.
