Our Story: Global Health is Local Health

Its all about win-win Collaborations

The Global Health Catalyst (GHC) summit is a premier yearly  event dedicated to catalyzing high impact international collaborations and initiatives to eliminate disparities in the USA and globally. The main focus of the summit is on the rising scourge of non-communicable diseases like cancer, mental health, pain and cardiovascular diseases which are severely impacting global health and economic development.

Since 2015, the yearly summits have led to numerous win-win collaborations including the launch of major collaboration initiatives like: the comprehensive cancer center in the cloud (C4) powered by artificial intelligence, Global Oncology University, and the International Phytomedicines Institute collaboration initiatives. 

The first summits were organized at Harvard,  Europe and African Institutions. The success of the GHC summits have resulted in funding support to grow organization of the summits at different top USA institutions and partners in low-and-middle-income countries  to catalyze collaborations benefiting both high income and low income countries. Given the global participation and collaborations involved with the GHC summits, the content expressed on this website does not reflect the views of any institution or those providing funding such as the National Cancer Institute. Join us  at one of the upcoming summits for win-win collaborations for global health and development
