The Milwaukee Global Health Consortium includes the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Aurora Health Care, Marquette University, Froedtert Hospital, Children's Hospital and Health System, Concordia University, the City of Milwaukee Health Department, Milwaukee County Government, the International Institute of Wisconsin, Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, and the Rotary Club of Milwaukee.
The Consortium develops and connects the global health programs and activities of these organizations, thereby improving global health through partnerships that benefit people and communities locally and globally, and generating meaningful learning opportunities that produce the next generation of global health leaders.
We value global cooperation and mutually beneficial partnerships that transcend national boundaries.
We believe in establishing health equity in communities around the world, including the communities in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
We embrace transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary collaboration.
Over the past 30 years, our focus has been the development of primary healthcare systems, emergency medical services, physician specialty and sub-specialty training, nurse clinical and management training, maternal and child health services, women's health services, mental health and substance abuse programs, oral and dental health services, chronic and infectious disease control and prevention programs, and nutritional services.
By bringing together Milwaukee's leading organizations in the health, education, research, and government sectors, we have been able to provide training for well over 3,000 individuals (and thousands more indirectly through a "train the trainers" approach) in more than 40 countries.
