The GHI Fund supports clinical care capacity for underserved patients worldwide and funds education and research aimed at sustainable solutions for critical global health challenges.
The GHI Fund started with one simple gift from a grateful Northwestern patient in 2008 who made a donation to honor his physician and support education at the Feinberg School of Medicine. Over the years, we have established educational outreach programs, supported clinics where our medical trainees and faculty work, provided seed funding for research and worked closely with faculty across the medical campus and the world to support efforts in global health.
Thanks to our generous and dedicated supporters, the GHI Fund is able to make a greater impact in addressing health disparities here and around the world each year.

The GHI and the Institute for Global Health
The GHI Fund has expanded exponentially over the past decade, raising millions of dollars for global health education and research at Northwestern. In addition to supporting elective rotations for medical students and residents, the GHI Fund has acted as a financial catalyst to support faculty research in a wide variety of disease-specific areas.
We face the twin challenges of sustainability and well-resourced growth. We are grateful for the continued generosity of our community and their support of our mission.
