How it began
CGHI was launched in January 2020, just weeks before the coronavirus outbreak, based on the belief that we could make a significant impact on human health by working together across sectors in new ways. We realized that what the world lacked was an innovative, nonpartisan convener and catalyst to create compelling and equitable solutions. And in addition, a mission-focused, data-driven organization that could swiftly marshal resources that already existed and inspire new discovery and invention to revolutionize global health.
Georgia Bio and the Georgia Global Health Alliance (GGHA) merged to form the umbrella organization of CGHI. CGHI supports the Office of Health Equity & Crisis Coordination (formerly the Global Health Crisis Coordination Center).
Located in Atlanta, Georgia, we are at the nexus of collaboration, discovery and invention in public health – and establishing a vibrant life sciences workforce and talent pipeline for future generations.
