The Division of Global and Community Health fosters dialogue at the policy level to meaningfully impact reproductive health in global communities. Division faculty, staff and trainees are encouraged to contribute to global health initiatives at all levels.

Division faculty and trainees have contributed to important reproductive health policies in collaboration with international policy makers, including the World Health Organization (WHO).

Botswana Global Health Program

In 2016, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at BIDMC expanded their involvement in the Botswana Global Health Program by having a full-time faculty primarily based in Botswana, providing clinical care and medical trainee education at Scottish Livingston Hospital in Molepolole.

The collaboration seeks to strengthen medical evaluation by incorporating Obstetric and Gynecology teaching services with Botswanan medical students and interns into ongoing patient care. US-based residents will also have the opportunity to participate in supervised clinical and research electives at this site. Click here to learn more.
