Global Orthopaedics at Johns Hopkins

Globe with Europe in view and lines connecting different parts of the world together.

Global Orthopaedics at Johns Hopkins (GO-JH) is an initiative to improve orthopaedic care across the world. We aim to promote safe, timely, accessible and affordable orthopaedic surgical care to achieve global health equality. We plan to do this by building partnerships in research, education and patient care within Johns Hopkins, nationally and internationally.
