DGHI faculty are working to understand how development and environmental changes are affecting the spread of diseases, such as malaria, in the Amazon. The climate change project is part of a growing research portfolio centered around human health and the environment. Researchers working in Brazil are also building partnerships for innovatively addressing health care delivery and for responding to the country's AIDS and tuberculosis epidemics. Undergraduate and medical students at Duke also pursue global health research in Brazil on various issues, including telemedicine.
