The IHN was founded on the core belief that an integrated approach across disciplines to combating disease is needed. IHN’s mission is to create a training program that addresses this need and to develop a network across different academic sectors. Our mission is to empower students to achieve their goals as future global health professionals by providing a holistic educational environment that allows for innovative thinking.
