Global Health

Georgetown’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues addresses global health-related issues and opportunities for cooperation through research, publications, and events that engage faculty, students, and leading stakeholders in both countries.

Established in spring 2016, the Research Group on Global Health and Migration, convened by Dr. Jennifer Huang Bouey of Georgetown University in collaboration with Dr. Cheng Feng of Tsinghua University, brings together a team of leading U.S. and Chinese scholars for dialogue and research around key academic and policy issues relating to pandemic preparedness, the cross-national movement of peoples, and challenges they pose for national health systems.

The goal of the dialogue is to identify issues of common concern and develop and pursue a shared research agenda that can inform better policy and advance practical cooperation in bilateral and multilateral contexts. The research group meets over several semesters, alternating between the United States and China. Learn more about the group's members and their work in the sections below. A select list of their scholarship and academic publications is available here
