The Centre’s vision is a world in which people around the world can enjoy long, healthy lives irrespective of where they live, and in which all those in need have ready access to effective, affordable, and compassionate healthcare. It is a vision based around the social values of justice, dignity, and respect for human life.
The Centre for Global Health Policy understands ‘global health’ in a broad and enabling way, revolving around three key pillars:
- Improving the health of populations and helping people around the world to live longer, healthier lives.
- Working towards greater social justice by reducing the significant health inequalities that exist in the world between – and also within – countries.
- Taking an international approach to health as something crucial to all peoples of the world, and requiring solutions particularly sensitive to the transnational determinants and consequences of disease.
