About the group

The group aims to advance a critical social science research agenda on global health, through research projects focused on 

  • The transfer of health policies and evidence between global and local levels
  • Civil society’s and other non-state actors' role within global health governance
  • Epidemic preparedness and response
  • Universal Health Coverage 
  • The political and social determinants of health

The research group hosts the Independent Panel on Global Governance for Health and convenes the Global Health Unpacked seminar series in collaboration with the University of Oslo's Centre for Global Health.  

The group collaborates with the project group of the ERC-funded Universal Health Coverage and the Public Good in Africa project. 

Research group members gathered for meeting at SUM in september 2019.
