Latin America is recognized as one of UNC’s global strengths. On campus since 1940, the Institute for the Study of the Americas (ISA) has been a cornerstone in promoting a deeper understanding of the Americas through innovative research, curricular development, and creative public policy initiatives.
In terms of global health, cross-campus research, teaching, and service collaborations in Latin America are deeply rooted in UNC’s academic culture.
Within this environment, the Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases is committed to fostering new collaborations and creating opportunities for synergistic programs to improve the health of all citizens in Latin America.
IGHID has significant involvement in programs in Guatemala and Nicaragua, while the campus as a whole has global health activities all across Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
