In 2016, AUB's newly inaugurated president, Dr. Fadlo R. Khuri, outlined a new vision for Health, HEALTH 2025. The vision's strategic aim is to better serve the population and clinical health needs of the peoples of Lebanon, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and the Global South. An integral component of HEALTH 2025 is the establishment of a Global Health Institute (GHI).
AUB’s Health 2025 Vision will develop an all-encompassing approach to human health, including nutrition, agriculture, nursing, public health, science and clinical medicine, ensuring that we develop, integrate and apply comprehensive health approaches to Arab societies that badly need them.
Health 2025 also aims to engage all academic, service and policy units at AUB in health, as well as strengthen AUB strategic partnerships with local, regional and global stakeholders.
