UCL Grand Challenges


Global Health

The UCL Grand Challenge of Global Health brings together a wealth of intellectual capital from across all disciplines, to find innovative, workable solutions to global health problems. Since the programme was established in 2008, 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.

Over the past 20 years, UCL Grand Challenges have spearheaded several innovative partnerships with The Lancet, on a range of health-related topics. From research Commissions leading to international policy changes, to open lectures covering the most topical issues in global health, we have reached a wide audience and created long-lasting impact.
