Global Health

Developing education, research and capacity-building programmes in global health.

The King’s Centre for Global Health brings together people working and studying across King’s Health Partners to:

  • develop global health education, research, policy and capacity-building programmes.
  • promote collaboration in global health in all 21 Clinical Academic Groups of King’s Health Partners and all faculties of King’s College London.

The Centre has partnerships with healthcare teams and organisations in Sierra Leone, Somaliland and Zambia. These partnerships focus on developing sustainable skills, organisational structures, and resources to improve health for the local populations.


Education and training

Our education programmes aim to prepare future leaders in global health to understand and address the challenges and opportunities of globalisation. Our courses cover subjects which are relevant to improving health and healthcare in resource-poor countries. We have particular strength in capacity building in fragile states, communicable and non-communicable disease, mental health and conflict.


We aim to deliver research in collaboration with low-middle income countries, building research capacity within our health partnerships and ensuring that our research is valuable.

Global Health is an area for study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. It emphasizes transnational health issues, determinants and solutions; involves many disciplines within and beyond the global health sciences and promotes interdisciplinary collaboration; and is a synthesis of population-based prevention with individual-level care.
