The Global Health Programme (GHP) at the Graduate Institute, established in spring 2008, is unique in Europe as a research programme integrated into an institute of international relations and development. It focuses on combining the practice and analysis of global health at the interface of health with foreign policy, trade, and development.

Geneva as ‘health capital of the world’ provides an excellent location for a strategic investment in applied research: Policy advice, based on the analysis of global developments impacting on health, is central to the positioning of the Global Health Programme worldwide. The programme examines the
