dianagosalvez Diana Gosálvez Prados — 5/06/2012


The Institute of Global Health Innovation is working to improve the health of people and reduce health inequalities in developed and developing countries. It aims to overcome global health challenges by harnessing Imperial’s interdisciplinary research strengths and its expertise in safe, effective and accessible technologies.



The Institute comprises a series of research centres that reflect Imperial’s commitment to global health by harnessing strengths in infectious and non-communicable diseases, health policy and systems, and technological innovation to address global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes. The Institute also plays an important role for advising governments and business on health policy through strategic collaborations with external organisations in the UK and abroad.

Acting as a hub for global health research and technological innovation within Imperial, the Institute works closely with basic sciences, engineering, and biomedical researchers for generating novel solutions to global health problems for both developed and developing countries.

The Institute for Global Health Innovation forms part of Imperial’s strategy to find solutions to global challenges by focussing multidisciplinary research expertise on addressing international issues. It is one of Imperial’s portfolio of global challenge institutes; the Energy Futures Lab, The Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Institute for Security Science and Technology.
