Global Health Programme
The Global Health Programme (GHP) is the Graduate Institute’s research programme on Global Health Governance and Diplomacy. It was established in Spring 2008 as one of the first of its kind in an institute devoted to international relations and development, reflecting the wider trend of analyzing global health through its linkages with foreign policy, trade and development.
The Programme’s activities focus on two pillars, namely global health governance and global health diplomacy, which inform each other: 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 Programme:
- Broadens the understanding of global health by engaging in research with an interdisciplinary approach;
- Builds capacity by conducting executive trainings in global health diplomacy for and with major stakeholders, particularly those present in Geneva;
- Contributes to setting agendas in global health governance and diplomacy, both at European and international level;
- Fosters inclusive partnerships across the regions.
