The Global Institute for Health and Human Rights - GIHHR

As part of its ongoing assessment of its research programs to ensure continued excellence, promote quality collaboration, and to maximize the efficient allocation of University resources, the University at Albany is restructuring its research efforts at the nexus of health and international and domestic human rights. This work, previously undertaken, in part, by the Global Institute for Health and Human Rights (GIHHR), will be continued in the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy and in the School of Public Health. The University’s work in this area will focus on generating a deeper understanding of the intersection between health and human rights, and to promote innovative solutions to contemporary challenges in this arena through research, education, policy, advocacy, and development.
