2020 Georgia Global Health Landscape Study
Thank you to our members and partners who helped produce this inaugural report
The 2020 Georgia Global Health Landscape Study is the first-ever study quantifying the impact of the global health sector on Georgia’s economy and the potential it holds for the future. This study will serve as a starting point for discussions about Georgia’s future global health strategy and investments.
The state of Georgia has long been at the crossroads of global health, home to some of the world’s top scientists, entrepreneurs, innovators, and advocates working to fight disease around the globe. Now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgians are again leading the way, driving scientific advances on vaccines and therapeutics, and guiding decisions at all levels of government and business. The study could not come at a more important time and demonstrates how our state is not only supporting global health progress and innovation, but driving it.
The findings of this study affirm Georgia’s position as an international hub for health. Global health is a vibrant and growing, cross-disciplinary sector in Georgia.
