The Milwaukee Global Health Consortium is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization comprised of member institutions. The Consortium develops and connects the global health programs and activities of Wisconsin's organizations in the health, education, research, and government sectors, and improves global health through partnerships that benefit people and communities locally and globally, generating meaningful learning opportunities that produce the next generation of global health leaders.
For the past three decades, the greater Milwaukee metropolitan area has been an advocate for and leader in global health research, education, training, and technology commercialization. Companies, universities, nonprofits, civil society organizations, and government agencies have worked together to strengthen health and safety locally and globally, with the goal of reducing disparities and inequities, for the world's diverse populations.
To measure the breadth and depth of greater Milwaukee's global health activities and to communicate the sector's impacts on the regional economy, the Milwaukee Global Health Consortium commissioned this landscape study.
