About the Center
Our Mission: The Center for Global Health Equity aims to reduce global inequities in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care.
The Center for Global Health Equity at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute envisions a world where cancer outcomes are not determined by where a person lives. Established in 2023, the Center works to centralize and enhance the Institute’s global health activities, addressing inequities in cancer prevention, care, and outcomes.
The Center for Global Health Equity focuses primarily on activities in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) and other underserved global regions. We serve as a coordinating center – housing existing Dana-Farber global health centers and activities, while also exploring new opportunities for partnering and developing innovative programming.
The Center for Global Health Equity works across three pillars:
- Fostering a global cadre of individuals committed to equitable cancer care and research through collaborative Education and Training opportunities
- Improving access to, and quality of, cancer care in resource-limited settings through the development and implementation of Clinical Care Capacity Building activities
- Producing, supporting, and promoting world-class Research that has local impact on cancer prevention and treatment in resource-limited settings
