Global Health

OHSU Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to advancing women's health through clinical care, education and research not only locally but also globally beyond our borders through sustainable global partnerships. We encourage mutually beneficial and enduring educational exchange focused on capacity building in women's health at OHSU and at institutions in developing countries. Our global health efforts are coordinated by a team of administrators and global health faculty.

Our mission is partner with global women's health institutions to deliver sustainable, efficient and effective care for women in developing countries and in so doing, to create ethically sound global health learning opportunities for interdisciplinary OHSU healthcare teams.

Our vision is two fold:

  1. Women worldwide have easy access to comprehensive and effective healthcare
  2. We produce healthcare providers who embody globally minded world view with deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of determinants of health.
