Research at the Earth Institute is organized into nine themes. Global health is one of them.

Global health is greatly affected by factors such as changes in global and regional climate, water resource quality, food growing capacity, ecosystem health, and access to health care. The situation in poor countries can be particularly acute. The Earth Institute recognizes that global health can be a barrier to development and works to improve medical care in the developing world, in addition to creating sustainable sources of clean water and studying the links between climate and the spread of certain diseases.
