Johns Hopkins researchers are fighting the Zika virus at home and abroad
Johns Hopkins actively prepares students to be global leaders and citizens, to take part in international learning activities, and—as our founding mission implores—to bring the benefits of discovery to the world.
We have a proud tradition of leadership in education, research, service, and patient care around the globe.
Some examples of our global impact:

The Bloomberg School has led major advances against global public health threats including malaria, polio, road traffic injuries, malnutrition, drowning, gun violence, HIV/AIDS, tobacco, and addiction.
- The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies has campuses on three continents and has, for more than 70 years, produced great leaders, thinkers, and practitioners of international relations.

From offering pioneering medical and nursing training at Peking Union Medical College Hospital in the 1910s; to creating a graduate-level international relations campus in Bologna, Italy, just 10 years after the end of World War II; to conducting ongoing research at hundreds of locations in more than 110 countries, we continue to bring knowledge to the world.
