Institute for Global Health


UCL Centre for Pragmatic Global Health Trials

Our Centre aims to promote methodological excellence in the conduct of pragmatic trials in global health.  Pragmatic trials inform clinical or policy decisions by providing evidence about the effectiveness of interventions in real-world community or clinical settings.  We partner with Trial Units and researchers working on complex interventions in a wide range of areas, including infectious diseases, sexual and reproductive health, non-communicable diseases, maternal and child health and  nutrition, and the prevention of violence against women.  We aim to promote innovation in all areas of global health trials, including their design, conduct, analysis, as well as the use of quantitative and qualitative data in the development phase of trials and process evaluation.
