The University of Hawaiʻi's Commitment to a Healthier Hawaiʻi and Pacific
The UH System has significant health sciences programs that collectively play an essential role in educating Hawaiʻi’s health workforce
and addressing the health challenges facing Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.
Established from listening sessions across the UH System and the community, UHealthy Hawaiʻi focuses on four priority areas, as described below.
The University of Hawaiʻi (UH) System Center for Indigenous Innovation and Health Equity (CIIHE) aims to advance Indigenous innovation (the application of traditional Indigenous knowledge, practices, and methodologies to contemporary problems) as a tool for health equity in Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) populations. For more details, please visit our Center for Indigenous Innovation and Health Equity page (click here).
The University of Hawaiʻi (UH) and the Hawaiʻi Department of Health (DOH) created the DOH-UH Contact Tracing Training Program (CTTP) to train hundreds of contact tracers during the COVID-19 pandemic. For more details, please visit our DOH-UH Contact Tracing Training Program page (click here)
Meetings are scheduled by appointment only, so please email us if you would like to visit in person.
