Global Health Centre

The Global Health Centre provides a better understanding of the shifting power balance in global health. 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, 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.

The Global Health Programme (GHP) was founded in spring 2008 as an integral part of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies. Being one of the first institutions dedicated to international relations and development, GHP has been serving as the leading organization globally in the nexus of health and other sectors such as foreign policy, trade, and development. It has also built partnerships with a wide-range of various actors at international, regional, and national levels, both for research and capacity building activities. In 2015, GHP was recognized as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Health Governance and Global Health Diplomacy. The GHP also act as a neutral platform for policy dialogues, events, and conferences. In 2016, the Global Health Programme (GHP) has transitioned into the Global Health Centre (GHC) in order to expand its activities, especially in research area.
