Global Public Health Action Network

 The Global Public Health Action Network (GPHAN) is a student organization that has a UNIVERSITY-WIDE REACH, providing opportunities to build the skills and interests of the NYU Community in Global Public Health. Our projects will draw from various faculty and resource persons within and outside the NYU community to enhance involvement and sharpen skills of members.

GPHAN is open to both undergraduate and graduate students of NYU. If you want to learn more about how YOU CAN GET INVOLVED, please email with the subject line – “getting involved”.  For further information, please visit the GPHAN website at

·  To be an action-oriented student organization that raises awareness and builds the capacity of global health communities within New York University and beyond through education, networking, mentoring and community service;

·  To provide support, training, partnership and coordination for student activities that share our vision and values.

GPHAN works to link organizations in need of pro-bono expertise with skilled NYU students in need of practical experience and contacts. Our student base comes from NYU's Master of Public Health Program, where a majority of our members have advanced degrees prior to entering the program. Many of the organization's members are trained physicians, nurses, lawyers, dentists, teachers, or hold graduate degrees in the fields of Biological and Physical Sciences, Social Science and Humanities, and Business. 

Education: Supporting Global MPH seminars and skills trainings

Networking: Participation in professional meetings & with other public health clubs within/outside NYU

Mentoring: To enhance the potentials of members in various specialties from our wide networks & affiliation with experienced and seasoned professionals

Community Service: Practical hands-on experience through workshops, volunteer services, and initiatives and/or projects with international/local community-based organizations
