Establishing Georgia as a Center for Global Health


Georgia has a remarkable number of internationally recognized, top-tier organizations working in global health from government, academic, non-profit, and private sectors.  These organizations are helping to end diseases and improve health and well-being for people in Georgia, nationally, and abroad.

Collectively, these organizations have a significant economic impact on both the city of Atlanta and the state that likely exceeds tens of billions of dollars annually.  Georgia has the potential to have an even greater impact on global health through leveraging the collective strength of the Georgia-based organizations that contribute to the global health mission.

Collaboration is critical in global health. The problems are far too large and costly for any one organization or industry to solve on their own. Georgia has an underappreciated and underutilized critical mass of global health entities.

Georgia Bio is a founding member and serves as secretariat for the Georgia Global Health Alliance (GGHA). GGHA is a non-profit organization working to facilitate collaboration across the public-private sector with Georgia’s diverse economy in public and global health.

Global Health ATL (002)


GGHA is a founding partner for the Global Health ATL initiative which is driving the creation of a first-of-its-kind global health innovation district in Atlanta, which will create an epicenter for not only global health initiatives, but also for health information technology, life sciences, disaster response and disease eradication. This innovation district will also work to fuel sustainable economic growth and inclusive economic development to benefit the entire region and beyond.
