Prof Mac MacLachlan
Director of the Centre
In analysing Global Health we address health problems and issues that transcend national boundaries, and informed by the circumstances and experiences of countries in differing contexts. Our underlying assumption is that the world's health problems are shared and are best tackled by cooperative action and the sharing of innovative solutions.
Based on our existing strengths and experience we have identified the theme of Strengthening Health Systems as a point of synergy. The philosophy of addressing problems shared by high, middle and low income countries by sharing solutions emphasizes the collaborative nature of the Centre. Our strategy is to build strong collaborative links with universities in high-income countries who have already well-established reputations in international health, as well as universities in the South and East who have developed significant expertise in global health research and are well-respected within their own countries. We also endeavour to provide a focal point for global health activity in Ireland by collaborating with third-level institutions on an all-Ireland basis through the Irish Forum for Global Health.
