Penn Nursing Global Health

Penn Nursing has a rich program of global activities and leadership ranging from the involvement of Dean Afaf Meleis in the international relief organization, CARE, the International Council on Women's Health Issues (ICOWHI), research conducted by our faculty in Africa and elsewhere, and, as shown here, our alumni who work to alleviate suffering and distribute knowledge.

Penn Nursing is also a PAHO-WHO Collaborating Center for Nursing and Midwifery Leadership.
