Programmes Global Health

The George Institute for Global Health

The George Institute for Global Health received funding from the Oxford Martin School from 2010 - 2017. Although funding of the programme has finished, 3 of its Directors; Professor Terry Dwyer, Professor Stephen MacMahon and Professor Robyn Norton, remain actively involved with the School as Oxford Martin Senior Fellows, and the 4th, Professor Kazem Rahimi remains as Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Deep Medicine

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.


The Institute has four units in Oxford:

Big Data in Healthcare

Healthcare Innovation and Evaluation

Childhood Diseases and Cancer

Oxford-India Health Research Network (OIHRN)
