The Access to Health Project (ATH) is an interdisciplinary health and human rights project in which students and faculty from Northwestern Law School's Center for International Human Rights (CIHR), the Center for Global Health, the Program in Public Health, the Kellogg School of Management, and the Feinberg School of Medicine. Together, they work in consultation with marginalized communities across the globe to assess the health needs of the community, and to design a targeted, sustainable approach. ATH has worked with rural communities in the Mopti region of Mali to address female genital cutting, with urban communities in Nigeria on health rights, and with medical providers in the Dominican Republic to increase communication, among others. The project was co-founded by Professor Juliet Sorensen of Northwestern's Pritzker Law School and Doctor Shannon Galvin of the Center for Global Health. It is directed by Juliet Sorensen.
