Welcome to the Trinity Centre for Global Health

Dr Frédérique Vallières
Director of the Centre

Global health is about social justice and human rights in the context of health; it’s about how health, illness and disability are socially patterned and how many of the world's health problems are not bounded by borders, but shared, and best tackled by collaborative innovation and cooperative action.

We have a particular focus on organisational, systems and policy perspectives on the process and contextual factors that determine the quality and effectiveness of service delivery and on access to health for vulnerable or marginalised groups. We reach into the difficult, the uncomfortable, the controversial; fusing evidence, ideas and action. 

We work with other academics, civil society, governmental, United Nations agencies and governments, across more than 40 countries, impacting policy and practice, and in the pursuit of excellent scholarship. In Trinity we provide an engaging and supportive learning environment for students and staff alike.
