Audacious Ideals

A few months into his role as the first co-director of Georgetown’s Center for Global Health and Quality (GHQ), Mark Dybul’s vision is taking shape.
 
While global health organizations traditionally administer programs and services in a “top-down approach,” Dybul champions a shift toward local partnerships. “We are more interested in supporting people in the country to provide the services and establish systems so that the external support is no longer necessary,” he says.
 
Dybul is also focused on the university’s role in promoting social justice and strengthening the concept of global health as a collaborative effort. “Losing that vision,” he says, “is the greatest risk to global health.”
