About the GHC

The Global Health Centre provides a better understanding of the shifting power balance in global health – for example, the increasing influence of emerging economies and the powerful role played by new foundations, the private sector and non-governmental organizations.

The Centre's work is defined by our two primary pillars:


The academic analysis of challenges and shifts in global health governance and global governance for health contribute to the capacity building of decision-makers and representative from governments, international organisations, global health initiatives and other stakeholders in global governance for health, such as civil society, foundations, private sector, platforms and alliances.

By affirming itself as a leading research centre on health as a global governance challenge and a centre of excellence in global health diplomacy worldwide, the Global Health Centre broadens the understanding of global health, builds capacity, contributes to setting agendas in global health governance and diplomacy and fosters inclusive partnerships.
