The Global Health Initiative (GHI) at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's
True advances in the care of children with cancer and blood diseases will not occur until all children, regardless of their place of birth, have access to care. The Global Health Initiative (GHI) at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s has become a leader in developing outreach initiatives that improve outcomes and survival rates for children with cancer and blood disorders worldwide.
Through the Global Health Initiative, Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s brings together faculty, fellows, nurses, social workers, psychologists, health educators, and managers who are involved in international projects on childhood cancer. All Global Health Initiative activities include ongoing efforts to establish twinning partnerships with sites in low- and middle-income countries and are centered around three objectives:
Our Mission, Vision, and Values
Mission: To improve the lives and enhance the care of children with cancer and blood disorders worldwide
Vision: For all children with cancer and blood disorders worldwide to receive the highest quality care
Training the clinical core of the first pediatric hematology/oncology hospital in Mexico in the latest models of care and treatment advances — and providing expert guidance as they built and developed their clinical and research infrastructure.
