We work to improve the quality of and access to health globally. We do this through improving understanding, innovating and sharing knowledge in global health.
Leadership and people
The Centre for Global Health (CGH) is led by Heads of Centre Professor Harish Nair and Professor Igor Rudan.
Research and methodology groups
Our core methodological strengths are in measuring disease burden, molecular epidemiology and evidence synthesis.
Current key groups led by members of the Centre for Global Health include:
One of nine evidence synthesis groups funded by the NIHR evidence synthesis programme. The aim of the evidence synthesis groups is to address knowledge gaps or to answer a specific need for healthcare, public health and social care stakeholders/audiences.
Projects and programmes
Examples of on-going activities and larger project/programme grants led by members of the Centre for Global Health.
