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.
