Welcome to the Institute for Behavioral and Community Health (IBACH)
IBACH is a non-profit research institute under the auspices of San Diego State University Research Foundation in San Diego, California. It is home to an active group of researchers, research professionals and trainees working alongside organizational partners to improve the quality of life of all residents. Several research centers are affiliated with IBACH including the Center for Research on Sexuality and Sexual Health (SASH), the SDSU-UCSD Cancer Partnership, and the SDSU HealthLINK Center.
Our mission is to build the evidence-base of modifiable determinants of health disparities, and in collaboration with our partners, develop evidence-based interventions to address these determinants to improve health and quality of life. We use these opportunities to train the next generation of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.
