2023 Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition

Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition

Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) hosts teams from around the world at Emory University to compete in the largest global health case competition in the world.

The Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition (EMGHCC) is an experiential program that brings together students from multiple disciplines to address a critical global health challenge. The competitive case competition environment requires student teams to work collaboratively to develop solutions designed for health impact and present a business case to an expert panel of judges.

With generous support from The Morningside Foundation, EGHI enters its 16th year uniting and preparing the next generation of global health leaders. In 2024, the competition will be held from March 14 – 23 on Emory’s campus. Student teams from 31 universities from across six continents will compete by presenting solutions to the case challenge: Tackling India’s Twindemic: Accelerating integrated diabetes melitus-tuberculosis care to end TB.
