Washington Global Health Landscape Study & Policy Event

April 28, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Washington Global Health Alliance invites you to join global health leaders for the release of the latest Washington Global Health Landscape Study which is available here.

Washington is home to a rich community of global health organizations addressing the most complex health challenges and saving millions of lives around the world.

The triennial Washington Global Health Landscape Study examines the breadth and depth of Washington’s global health sector and its contributions to the state’s economy.

We hope you will join us to learn more about Washington’s global health ecosystem and interact with the global health community. Special thanks to our sponsors RTI International and #ScienceWorks for making this landscape study possible.
