Support more equitable health outcomes and development for communities around the world.

Address inequity on a global basis

Inequities in global health are complex and pervasive, with people marginalized by virtue of multiple factors--a socioeconomic circumstance, identity, geography and more--experiencing them disproportionately. These inequities result from complex systems operating at global, national and local levels, from health and economic policy to urban planning and environmental conditions, governance to cultural norms and social hierarchies.

UB’s master of science degree in international development and global health is the only full master’s program in the U.S. that combines the areas of global health and international development. You'll gain the interdisciplinary perspective required to address significant barriers to sustainable development and social justice around the world.
