About the Program
The complex, interrelated nature of the problems facing us requires a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach.
At the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Program on Global Sustainability and Health marshals extensive expertise in a wide range of disciplines to:
- Focus research on solutions to these challenges
- Educate the public, policy makers, health professionals, and students about the challenges and solutions
- Provide resources to the public health practice community to aid them in developing strategies to handle these challenges
- Effect policy change
The Johns Hopkins Program on Global Sustainability and Health is engaged in examination of the drivers, consequences and implications of global environmental change in light of the three main complicating challenges of shrinking supplies of inexpensive petroleum and the financial and political obstacles to achieving a more sustainable future.
