About the initiative

Human health stands out as one of humanity's grand challenges for the 21st century and beyond. Like other grand challenges, the advancement of human health requires multidisciplinary efforts – the fusion of life, physical, data and behavioral sciences, clinical practices, engineering and design.

To this end, the Technion launched the Technion Human Health Initiative (THHI) an institution-wide, comprehensive program that aims to address this challenge in its broadest terms
