Global Health Justice

Welcome to the Global Health Justice Website!

We aim to advance the struggle for global health justice by providing resources that explore fundamental drivers of health that are often absent in the conventional global health discourse. We recognize that global and national structures of domination, exploitation, and oppression play a crucial role in perpetuating poverty, disenfranchisement, and inequality. Our goal is to identify and better understand how injustice is perpetrated – and to work to transform power dynamics toward a fairer world.

By shedding light on these issues, we hope to promote a deeper understanding of the social and political determinants of health. To this end, we prioritize the perspectives and voices of those from the Global South, whose lived experiences and insights are essential for a truly comprehensive understanding of health justice. Our website is a collaborative effort, with contributions from students, staff, faculty, and alumni of the University of Washington Department of Global Health.
