A significant step towards equity in health care was taken at the end of this October at Harvard, with the launch of the Institute for Global Health Equity Research (IGHER) at the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) in Rwanda.

Professor Cristina Stefan, stated that among other projects, a large share of the Institute’s research will be directed towards innovative approaches to cancer prevention, detection and management, specifically designed to address the needs of the most underserved populations.

IGHER will seek avenues for collaboration with Mass General Brigham and other prominent healthcare institutions, to leverage the experience and skills of their leading researchers in collaborative projects with African colleagues, while addressing major health issues.
