Global Health

Our global health research and teaching places international public health within a health systems perspective.

We work across a wide range of health systems to produce research which

  • uses realist evaluation and realist synthesis to explain effectiveness in the context of social, environmental, economic, and political determinants of health
  • uses transdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving, with the aim of collectively analyzing issues and developing solutions across a range of institutions, sectors and systems
  • aims to develop and strengthen partnerships across low-, middle- and high-income countries
  • uses participatory, action-oriented research to facilitate the co-development of evidence relevant to policymakers across different countries
  • evaluates the implementation of policies and interventions, producing results that can be used to improve health systems.
