The George Institute for Global Health aims to help reduce the global burden of non-communicable diseases and injuries through health research, policy development and capacity building. Populations of the Asian and Western Pacific regions are a major focus of The George Institute’s activities.
The George Institute for Global Health seeks to discover modifiable causes of non-communicable diseases and injuries, to identify effective and affordable prevention and treatment strategies, and to strengthen health systems for disease and injury control through:
• Large-scale clinical, epidemiological and health services research projects
• Evidence-based health policy development, implementation and evaluation
• Capacity-building in epidemiology, clinical research, biostatistics and policy development
• Partnerships with health authorities, academic institutions, governments, non-governmental organisations and multi-lateral agencies.
The George Institute for Global Health has over 150 staff working on projects in almost 30 countries with the collaboration of more than 300 hospitals and universities worldwide.
