Institute of International Health

The Institute of International Health (IIH) at Michigan State University has a deep commitment to improving the quality of life in resource-poor and disadvantaged communities around the world. In pursuing its goals, IIH works closely with MSU's International Studies and Programs to apply academic and research methodologies to global health issues. As the focal point at MSU for global health programs and outreach, the Institute fosters and administers global health research programs and projects for MSU faculty and students that not only enhance learning and cultural competency at MSU, but also benefit underprivileged communities in numerous countries around the world. Founded in 1987, the Institute will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2012.
