Programmes Global Health

The George Institute for Global Health

What are we doing?
We are dedicated to the formulation, evaluation and implementation of innovative strategies for managing the healthcare challenges facing the world in the 21st century.

Why is it important?
In the coming decades, healthcare systems in all regions of the world will face an increasing demand for essential health services, largely as a consequence of an ageing population and an increasing burden of chronic disease.

How are we different?
It is now apparent that no global health agenda is complete without consideration of the chronic disease burden and the strategies for its management.  Much of our work aims at providing evidence that will directly inform policy and practice.
