COVID-19 Relief for India

As the global COVID crisis continues to unfold, we share the world’s concern and empathize as witnesses to the growing humanitarian crisis occurring in India. The country is being taxed by the extraordinary demand for limited critical resources as an overwhelming number of people are diagnosed with COVID-19 each day.

Plans for 2021 Fall Term

Assuming continued improvements in vaccine availability and uptake over the summer and beyond, combined with improvements in public health measures and a reduced rate of community prevalence, we will return to something more similar to our pre-pandemic operations as described in today’s message from the University.

Sharing our IDARE Action Plan

We are pleased to share the first public-facing school-wide Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, and Equity (IDARE) Action Plan for the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Action Plan identifies strategies for creating an environment where we fuel our creativity and excellence by cultivating a more equitable, inclusive, anti-racist, and socially-just community.

Supporting Change to Help End Gun Violence

If we all commit to these actions and advocate for change by supporting organizations dedicated to public health solutions to gun violence through better firearms laws, improving neighborhood conditions, dismantling structural racism, and investing in community prevention efforts, we can make a difference.

In Memoriam: Sidney Lerner, 1930–2021

A longtime friend of public health and the founder of Meatless Mondays and other campaigns, Sid Lerner will be missed. But his marketing acumen and visionary generosity leaves a lasting imprint on the School.
