UCL Grand Challenges


Grand Challenge of Global Health

The UCL Grand Challenge of Global Health brings together the university's wealth of intellectual capital from across all disciplines, to find innovative, workable solutions to global health problems.

Since the programme was established in 2009, it has created and facilitated novel collaborations on topics such as non-communicable diseases, the health effects of climate change and the health of migrants and refugees.

Our work so far

Our Work

Since 2009, the Grand Challenge of Global Health has brought together UCL researchers to find new ways to reduce health inequality in the world. This Grand Challenge has particularly focussed on non-communicable diseases, the effects of climate change on public health and how health services should improve to serve marginalised groups better. Find out more about what we have achieved in Global Health
