Global Health Section

The Global Health Section has a strong focus on education and outreach, and is active in many capacity building projects with partners in low-income countries.

The research at the Department of Public Health's Global Health Section takes an interdisciplinary approach to global health, and covers a wide range of topics such as diabetes and double burden of disease, environmental health, disaster and emergency health, infectious and neglected tropical diseases, sexual and reproductive health, and health care delivery in low-income societies.










To meet the increasing need for capacity building and strengthening of the resource base in global health both in Denmark and internationally, the Department of Public Health's Global Health Section offers several study programmes, short courses and summer schools.
