Developing scalable solutions to global health’s toughest challenges.


The Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) works with collaborators around the world to develop and study global health innovations and support their translation into policy at scale. We focus specifically on testing structural interventions in HIV prevention and treatment that expand local capacity.

Our Work

We believe in ground-up public health innovation that starts with inclusive problem-solving that elevates local voices and expertise, moves beyond surface solutions to address structural inequities, and rigorously tests innovative solutions to ensure sustainable impact at scale. CIGH is a unique partnership between Georgetown University Medical Center and the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, bringing together legal, policy, and medical expertise.
