In Tanzania, #vaccine coverage rates are relatively high across the country, but regional variations exist, and vaccines are not always administered in a timely manner. To address these issues, @dukechpir affiliate Lavanya Vasudevan, #DGHI prof Joy Noel Baumgartner and DGHI adjunct Jan Ostermann are working with partners at Tanzania’s National Institute for Medical Research and the government’s Expanded Programme on Immunisations to research local barriers to timely vaccinations and identify an #mHealth-assisted incentive structure that can systematically offset the barriers faced by families with infants. In this photo, researchers from the National Institute for Medical Research trace study participants with the help of a local community leader in rural Tanzania.
We're excited to share our 2017-2018 annual report, which highlights the demonstrable impact #DGHI has made on communities around the world through its trifold mission of research, education and partnership! Download the report at the link on our bio.

This fall, the Duke Global Health Institute enrolled its 10th cohort of students in the Master of Science in Global Health program. To commemorate our 10th anniversary, we reconnected with eight of our graduates—one from each year since 2011—and two current students, to find out what they’re up to and how their DGHI experience helped shape their global health path. Their memories, photos, and exciting stories are collected in a feature article linked in our bio. We hope you enjoy celebrating the wide-reaching impact of the MSc-GH program as much as we do!
