About the Centre for Global Health
The Centre for Global Health (CGH) is an initiative of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Oslo as part of the agenda to meet the Sustainable Development Goal challenges. The world is facing challenges that require efforts from the entire global community. Finding sustainable solutions to global health problems is urgent in an increasingly globalized and unequal world.

The CGH’s ambitions are to mobilize cross-sectorial, multi- and interdisciplinary global health research, to be a hub for capacity development in research based global health education, and a facilitator of community engagement, knowledge-based dialogue, and public opinion formations related to important global health discussions thus ultimately contributing to sustainable development.
The UiO CGH is a multi- and interdisciplinary hub for education and research capacity development in global health, contributing to sustainable development through collaboration and networking.
