About GlobalHealth Lab
GlobalHealth Lab is a class that pairs teams of MIT Sloan students with organizations on the front lines of healthcare delivery to codesign practial innovations. We are on hiatus for the 2014-15 academic year and aim to restart in late 2015. This year, we’re developing shareable materials from the lessons learned over our first six years and dozens of projects–and many great student learning experiences.
From our on-site collaborations, we’ve developed a series of How-To modules that can help those working on the front lines of care delivery to assess their organizational needs and provide data-driven solutions. Business model case profiles take a unique look at innovative approaches to delivering more and better healthcare to low-income populations in developing countries.
