Project Overview

Population health is a broad concept encompassing not only the elimination of diseases and afflictions, but also the intersecting and overlapping factors that influence health.   The Population Health Facility will serve as a powerful catalyst for the University’s new Population Health Initiative and be an idea laboratory and collaboration incubator.  It will house the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the Department of Global Health, and elements of the School of Public Health, all of which will greatly benefit from close proximity.  The facility will also provide central gathering spaces for faculty, students, staff, partners, and visitors from a wide range of disciplines across campus, the region, the nation, and the world to address important global health concerns.  A transformative gift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation makes this project possible.  Please follow the link below to hear the UW President Cauce speak about the vision for this project.
