Partnering to Alleviate Inequity in Health Care

Since 1906, Yale-China Health Programs have been connecting health professionals in China and at Yale to build knowledge and capacity through long-lasting individual and institutional relationships. Through training, exchanges, and expert partnerships, Yale-China continues to bring professionals from Changsha, Western Hunan, Kunming, and Yale together to cultivate leaders and create change on a systems level.

Modeling Better Rural Health Care


Western Hunan Intitiative to Improve Services at the Local Level (WHISL)

Yale-China is working with Chinese and US partners to develop a sustainable, repeatable model that rethinks the scope of health services at the local level; increases skills of local providers; improves coordination between village, township and county caregivers; and raises the quality of local care.

Empowering Women in the Health Professions

The Chia Fellowship offers us a valuable chance to experience a high level of education and clinical observation, which makes us think about the difference in our own education and practice settings and try to make changes as we can.
