The Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research is an instigator and facilitator of a broad range of health policy and health disparities research that address policy relevant issues. Activities focus on population based  health research, health systems research, and intervention and evaluation research. The Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research (CHPIR) fosters an interdisciplinary collaborative investigative environment that also seeks to educate Duke students by providing experiences in working with our research teams and through individual mentorship.

We are a part of the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI), joining them in their work to reduce health disparities. Together we recognize that local is global when dealing with health inequalities. So, in that spirit CHPIR enhances DGHI’s partnerships, research and impact.
