Global Health Programme

Our research examines how global health challenges manifest themselves as international affairs problems.

We at the Global Health Progamme deliver our work through the Centre for Universal Health.

We focus on the political economy of health and health sector reforms and improving governance in global health. We aim to accelerate progress towards the health-related United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We also help countries strengthen health security.
