Institute for Global Health – Changing Lives Around the World

Our unique, cross-disciplinary approach is reflected throughout our research and teaching. We work in the real world, collaborating with communities at all levels, and offering workable solutions for policy makers. The Institute for Global Health implements UCL’s Grand Challenge of Global Health, a cross disciplinary initiative to provide innovative, workable solutions to global health problems.  Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to our approach to research, teaching and beyond.
