To Apply


The following funders make DGHI individual grants possible.

The Paul Farmer Global Health Fund

This grant honors Paul Farmer, MD, PhD, the co-founder of the global health organization Partners in Health, who was a Duke alumnus and former member of the DGHI Board of Advisors and Duke trustee. Until his death in February 2022, Farmer inspired global health practitioners and scholars with his tireless efforts to provide healthcare and advocacy for the world’s poorest people. His lifetime of service and commitment to addressing health inequities remains a guiding light for DGHI’s work around the globe. Applicants for this grant should have a demonstrated interest in issues of global health disparity. All projects must include a Duke faculty mentor as well as a community-based partner in their research location.
