QMUL’s Global Public Health Unit was established in 2011, and is rooted in the various disciplines of public health and social medicine. It has a strong orientation towards the social aims of equity, justice and sustainability; as well as towards health systems that are universal, comprehensive and operating in the public interest.
The Unit is mainly built around the delivery of a Global Health teaching programme which consists of five MSc programmes and an undergraduate BSc in Global health.
All taught programmes are multi-disciplinary, and cover the biological, environmental, social, political and economic dimensions of the challenges we face in securing a healthier world, in low- as well as high-income settings.
The Unit also has a small but growing research programme, with its eleven academic staff also engaging in policy debates and public health programmes both locally and internationally.
