Global Health

The Global Health program aims to contribute to health for all in a global context through inter- and transdisciplinary research collaboration that foster interaction between theory, policy and practice.

The research provides insights in key issues in:

  • The role of urbanization on health in low-resource settings, and the vulnerable migrant populations globally, including high-income countries;
  • Factors affecting maternal health and the health of the early life including poverty, malnutrition, low education and poor access to healthcare services;
  • Surveillance, disease program evaluations, transmission models, antimicrobial resistance, and preventive strategies of several communicable diseases.

We examine health systems strengthening particularly in low-resource settings to improve universal health coverage.
