Berkeley Alliance for Global Health

In the developing world, more than 18,000 people die each day from HIV, TB, malaria, and poor access to basic health care; many more are caught in a poverty trap resulting from health-related income shocks, productivity losses, and family disruption. Lack of political will plays a role in this—but persistent challenges in the lab and the field have also slowed improvements in health for the poor. To accelerate gains in global health, the toolset for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease must be expanded. The Berkeley Alliance for Global Health supports these efforts through the diverse research and programs of its participating Centers.
