The Blount Center endeavors to build bridges between academic, governmental, non-governmental, and religious institutions in support of sound, sustainable public health and development initiatives grounded in a shared vision of human rights and social justice. The Center focuses on addressing social-systemic factors that leave those who are most marginalized in our societies bearing the ill effects of health disparities.
With this focus, the Blount Center works both in the United States and internationally to encourage gender equity, LGBT civil rights, racial and ethnic equality, and economic opportunity. The Center works collaboratively with other Emory programs and enjoys a strong, ongoing partnership with the Interfaith Health Program.
