The University of Edinburgh’s Global Health Academy is a collaboration across the University.
It promotes an interdisciplinary approach to education and research in order to have a greater impact on global health issues.
The academy brings together academics and experts from a wide variety of disciplines who share the common aim of developing innovative solutions for the world’s most challenging health problems.
Recent projects include examining the effects of parasites and the immune system and developing health system models to combat some of the major causes of child mortality, including diarrhoea, HIV, malaria and measles.
