Section for Global Health

Many low- and middle-income countries around the world face rising levels of chronic disease, like cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. At the same time, they are constrained by limited resources, impacting the development, evaluation, and expansion of successful prevention and treatment strategies.

In line with Sustainable Development Goal 3 – Good Health and Well-Being for All at All Ages - the Section for Global Health’s work supports countries in these regions in their efforts to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment by one third by 2030.

Our Vision

Improving population health by reducing the burden of noncommunicable diseases globally.

Our Mission

The Section for Global Health will advance this vision in low- and middle-income countries by:

  • Conducting translational research.
  • Building capacity in dissemination and implementation science.
  • Working with policymakers to strengthen health systems.
