List of scientific publications

Our research focuses on health problems and possible solutions in settings throughout the world. Much of this internationally recognised work is conducted in collaboration with other world class research institutions.

We embrace a multidisciplinary approach to the research questions we seek to address, where possible using a combination of complementary qualitative and quantitative approaches, and we work closely with colleagues from all continents of the globe.

The Epidemiology and Global Health Unit hosts the international peer-reviewed journal Global Health Action, with a strong in-house editorial team, and we have also developed and make available the free, online qualitative data analysis software package Open Code through the Unit's website.
