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

The Section for Global Health will lead global health research targeted at reducing the burden of non-communicable disease, with a focus in low and middle-income countries. The Section will realize this vision through both conducting research and building capacity in dissemination and implementation science, outcomes research and population health services research among low and middle-income countries’ investigators and trainees.
