Harvard Undergraduate Global Health Forum

Purpose Statement

HUGHF aims to provide the Harvard undergraduate community with a comprehensive view of global health issues alongside opportunities to actively address them through field work. HUGHF will (1) raise awareness in the Harvard undergraduate community of pressing global health challenges by using meetings as a forum to discuss these issues and disseminating information on pertinent world health topics; (2) provide undergraduates with an expert opinion on confronting global health challenges by hosting dinners, presentations, panel discussions, and conferences with notable experts in the field, both from Harvard faculty and NGOs; (3) engage students in global health field projects abroad under the umbrella of large NGOs and partner organizations, thereby realizing the volunteer potential of an informed Harvard student body.
