The Office of Global Health’s dedication to global health promotion and interdisciplinary collaboration is founded on several guiding principles, including respect for the dignity and human rights of all persons, striving for health equity, and support to those in need. The events of the past few weeks graphically underscore how centuries of systemic racism, spurred by colonialist greed and rooted in slavery, have undermined these guiding principles in the United States. The leadership of the Office of Global Health stands with those who are speaking out forcefully against racial violence and discrimination in the United States and around the world, hoping that this is the moment that finally instigates long-lasting social and cultural change.
