Centre for Global Chronic Conditions
We seek to improve understanding of and responses to chronic conditions in low, middle and high-income country settings through research, policy and public engagement and teaching.
The Centre fosters collaboration and communication between researchers across a range of settings and disciplines. We have skills in epidemiology, economics, social and political sciences; and with a strong focus on health systems.
We address chronic non communicable diseases (NCDs), and also their interaction with other chronic conditions – in particular mental health, and chronic communicable diseases such as TB and HIV/AIDS.
