Global Health

Cambridge Public Health’s Global Health Pillar focuses on fostering relationships with partners in Low-to-Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). Our goal is to combine the world-leading research taking place at Cambridge with that of our partners across the world, in an effort to improve health for everyone.

At Cambridge, we focus on a range of subjects across university departments, including emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, neglected tropical diseases, vaccines, diet and activity, neurotrauma, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Yet to do so effectively, it’s critical that we communicate with both our internal and external partners: tackling global health problems is, we believe, about understanding other cultures as much as it is about understanding biology and disease.

Global Health is about connecting people and ideas to improve well-being internationally.

The Global Health Pillar is led by Dr Caroline Trotter, Dr Rosalind Parkes-Ratanshi, and Dr Stephen Baker

CPH Seminar: Towards a value proposition for Ageing Friendly Communities - 26 Nov 2021

People are living longer. Yet for many, the opportunities afforded by a longer life – to themselves and society – are lost due to poor health and difficulty remaining involved in society. This is exacerbated by socioeconomic disadvantage, and associated with increasing social and economic costs. The balance between the ‘burden’ and the benefits of an ageing population can thus be tipped either way. One promising approach is to design enabling ‘ageing-friendly’ environments that support people to live well.
