Golbal Health

The George Institute for Global Health received funding from the Oxford Martin School from 2010 - 2017. Although funding of the programme has finished, Professor Kazem Rahimi remains as Lead Researcher of the Oxford Martin Programme on Deep Medicine.

the project

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

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.

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.
