Slide background

Global WACh's Seeds for Change
awards improve the patient
experiences in limited and middle
income countries by improving
clinical care, patient satisfaction,
workforce empowerment, and
health service delivery.

The Graduate Certificate in Women, Adolescent, and Child Health gives UW graduate and doctoral students a comprehensive overview of WACh health and current issues in global health.

Global WACh prioritizes a multi-disciplinary approach
to solving complex health problems. We've partnered with several UW schools to develop courses, seminars, and lectures.

The Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh) in the University of Washington Department of Global Health aims to make scientific discoveries, cultivate leaders, and bridge disciplines to advance the tightly connected health and well-being of women, adolescents, and children.  Our research approach focuses on critical windows—during birth and infancy, during the transition from childhood to adolescence, and from adolescence into adulthood—where healthcare interventions can have long-term benefits across the lifecycle.
