Rotterdam Global Health Initiative


Logo RGHIOur department is one of the three founding institutions of the Rotterdam Global Health Initiative (RGHI). The RGHI aims to contribute to improving population health, in particular in low and middle income countries, and reducing global health inequities, through research, teaching and social valorisation. Addressing global health problems, including global health inequities, requires a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach. The RGHI does exactly that, by joining the forces across our university, including our Department, the Institute of Health Policy & Management, and the Institute of Social Studies, thus providing a unique combination of expertise in the areas of public health, health systems and development studies. Key research areas include socio-economic inequalities in health and the social determinants of health, infectious and non-infectious disease control, and monitoring and evaluation.
