The Centre for Global Health Histories draws strength from academic staff based within all University of York Departments, and from its work with partners based all over the world. CGHH is actively involved in creating international coalitions of academics, officials involved in policy design and implementation, medical and education professionals and health workers, multilateral and non-government organisations, and those involved in regulating and assessing projects and policies.

If you are interested in associating yourself with the Centre and getting to know more about its activities, please contact one of the Co-Directors: Professor Sanjoy Bhattacharya, Dr Lynda Dunlop and Dr João Nunes.
