Mailman School of Public Health

For over 85 years, the Mailman School of Public Health has been a leader in the field. Today, the School confronts critical issues such as infectious and environmental disease, health care for the uninsured, prevention of violence and teen pregnancy, preparedness for natural and human-made disasters, and treatment for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS in resource-poor countries. In addition to expanding student financial aid, faculty development, and programs, the School also needs to create facilities that match the extraordinary caliber of its departments, centers and programs.
