The Johns Hopkins India Institute brings together the Hopkins community and a diverse range of Indian partners to promote

multidisciplinary collaborations that address some of the world’s most pressing issues. Our faculty comprise experts in medicine, public health, economics, business, public policy, engineering, data science, and artificial intelligence who work with India’s experts across government, academia, civil society, and the private sector to advance human knowledge and develop bold, world-changing ideas that arise from powerful Indo-JHU collaborations.

JHII’s activities involve:

  • Democratizing access to information: Deepening our focus on current areas of research including infectious diseases, maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, and health systems, while building up local leaders and institutions through collaboration and capacity building.
  • Expanding research in areas of health data and technology, including health surveillance and analytics, artificial intelligence, and healthcare management.
  • Partnering with Indian institutions to tap into adjacent opportunities beyond healthcare, such as health entrepreneurship, education, policy research and interdisciplinary science & practice.

We anticipate the launch of our full website in summer 2021. In the meantime, we encourage you to connect with us for updates about events and new developments, and to contact us for opportunities to engage.
