Global Health Research
School of Global Health - University of Copenhagen aims to facilitate global health research across the University of Copenhagen, our university partners in Denmark and abroad, our public and private sector partners, and to people interested in this field of research.
SGH does not actively conduct research, but is often involved in research projects as a dissemination partner due to our outreach platform. Our main goal is to create awareness around global health research, connect researchers and partners, and advice on topics and processes.
SGH has a broad focus within global health, but specifically focus 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.
SGH encourages research on integrating basic laboratory and theoretical research with clinical research and field-based public health studies in order to improve health among affected populations.
SGH is connected to various research projects around the world: Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Tanzania, Vietnam, Mexico, South Africa, Kenya, Pakistan, USA, India, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Nepal and Taiwan.
Under 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 conduct global health related research.
