Silk Road Project

This collaborative research program explores various aspects of behavioral health and illness across a span of countries from Central Asia, namely Afghanistan, along the ancient Silk Road. Several studies, led by Dr. Qais Alemi and using both primary and secondary data, have investigated an array of public health challenges in Afghanistan. The goal of this project is to revive an ancient superhighway of global collaborative scholarship to advance health and well-being in conflict-affected populations.
