Global Health

Chatham House research on global health explores global health governance and architecture, responses to disease threats and access to health products and services.

Global health security projects also cover antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance, global health surveillance, biosecurity and health system reconstruction in post-conflict states.

A major programmatic focus of this work for Chatham House is carried out by the Centre on Global Health and Security and its projects.
