Global Health Research

The research at the Copenhagen School of Global Health focuses on the double burden of disease and social inequalities in health. These include the chronic and non-communicable diseases that increasingly affect underprivileged societies, the infectious diseases that disproportionately affect them, detrimental disease interactions, problems such as weak health systems, inadequate food safety and nutritional deficiencies, as well as irrational drug use and cultural, societal, gender-based and environmental barriers to health.

The emphasis is on integrating basic laboratory and theoretical research with clinical research and field-based public health studies in order to improve health among affected populations.

CSGH is involved in research projects in many countries around the world: Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Tanzania, Vietnam, Mexico, South Africa, Kenya, Pakistan, USA, India, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Nepal and Taiwan.

In CSGH partners and collaborators you will find an overview of the centres, units and departments across University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen University Hospital and Statens Serum Institut, that make up the Copenhagen School of Global Health.
