Religion and Public Health Collaborative



Informed by a broad, multivalent understanding of the dynamic relations of religion and health, the Religion and Public Health Collaborative draws together religion and theology faculty with others in the School of Public Health, the Nursing School, the Medical School and the Ethics Center. It builds on strengths in the field already well established at Emory, including the Interfaith Health program and the Faith and Health certificate, the African Religious Health Assets Program, and the study of religion and reproductive health begun by the Women’s and Children’s Center.

This initiative has launched three unprecedented projects of major proportions: Health Asset Mapping; Religion, Politics and Reproductive Health; and the Academic Programs in Religions and Health, including a project on Cultural and Religious Literacy for Health Professionals.
