Our Vision:  Less Infection, Healthier Children...Globally

The Ryan White Center for Pediatric Infectious Disease and Global Health (PIDGH) is a national leader in research, education and clinical care in global pediatric infectious diseases.

Our goal is to improve the health of children in Indiana and around the world through outstanding pediatric disease research, training and clinical care.

The Ryan White Center for PIDGH is distinctive in:

  • Clinical Care:  We take expert care of more than 1,000 children every year with complex infectious diseases
  • Research:  We are a nationally recognized leader in malaria and HIV research
  • Education:  Our infectious disease fellowship trains globally focused physicians-scientists 


The Center was built with extraordinary support over the past 25 years from the Indiana University Dance Marathon, and builds on the legacy of Ryan White, Jeanne White and Ryan’s doctor, Dr. Martin Kleiman.
