CCHH: CHINA CENTRE FOR HEALTH AND HUMANITY

中國仁康中心


The UCL China Centre for Health and Humanity takes an interdisciplinary approach to research and teaching, and is strong in the social sciences: history and culture, archaeology, the environment, law and international health and development. It is committed to UCL's Grand Challenges especially as they relate to China: global health, sustainable cities, intercultural interaction and human wellbeing.

The Confucian concept Ren 仁, the quality that makes individual and society ‘human’ or ‘humane’, is at the centre of contemporary Chinese ethical discourse and CCHH will take up this debate in relation to health. We support interdisciplinary research and education in all these aspects of China’s health, and China’s impact on world health, past, present and future.


The Centre brings together UCL’s considerable China expertise in an ambitious programme of teaching and research. We aim to develop existing connections and facilitate new collaborative initiatives with institutions in China, creating new spaces for dialogue and debate about effective and appropriate health interventions.

伦敦大学学院的中国仁康中心以中国为中心,坚持本学院的四项大挑战:全球健康,城市的可持续发展,跨文化交流,人类幸福。我们在健康问题上进行多方面的交叉学科研究及教育,对中国在过去、现在和将来对全球健康的影响进行多方面探索。中国仁康中心于2011年六月开放。我们将提供一个相互合作的平台给UCL研究中国的专家学者,使他们能够参与这宏伟的教育和研究项目。 我们目的是发展原有的多方关系,以及在其基础上开展与中国有关机构的新的合作关系,促进有效对话,探讨与发展新的合作项目。

The Centre organises seminars, film screenings and general-interest events, which are open to all members of the UCL community and registered Friends of CCHH. To become a Friend, please fill in the online form by clicking here.
