Global Public Health, Radiology, and Health Equity

UNC faculty and staff at Kamuzu Central Hospital

Mission: UNC Global Radiology advances health equity through education, collaboration, and innovation.

Program Vision: Because every patient deserves high quality care, the UNC Department of Radiology educates the next generation of global leaders and makes meaningful contributions to increase access to health services.‚Äč

UNC Global Radiology, a RAD-AID Chapter, was founded in 2012 by the UNC School of Medicine’s Division of Radiologic Science and the Department of Radiology. Global health includes issues that transcend national boundaries, like cancer, and that require worldwide, multidisciplinary cooperation — so our partnerships have a Local to Global approach.

We have active health equity programs in North Carolina, Kenya, and Malawi. Our efforts align with the vision of UNC Health and promote the university’s aims within the Carolina Next strategic plan.

Donations made to the Global Radiology Initiatives fund support our partnerships.

Program Values:

Within UNC Global Radiology, we believe that every person, including our team members, patients, and collaborators, has inherent value and deserves respect.

Within this program, we promote and value diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging. Learning to understand and appreciate views different from our own creates community and fosters excellence.

Within UNC Global Radiology, we conduct our work and engage in our partnerships with integrity to honor the responsibility of our mission and the people with whom we work.
