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 and Dr Rosalind Parkes-Ratanshi
