The Iowa Global Health Network (IGHN) is an interdisciplinary group of scholars at the University of Iowa whose research and interests lie in the study of real world health problems and challenges. The Network provides opportunities for cross disciplinary interaction, development of new scholarly and clinical initiatives, and fosters collaboration among those interested in global health at the University of Iowa.
