The George Institute for Global Health is a leading independent global medical research institute established and headquartered in Sydney, with additional major centres in China, India and the UK and an international network of experts and collaborators.
Vision and mission
The Institute’s mission is to improve the health of millions of people worldwide, particularly those living in disadvantaged circumstances, by challenging the status quo and using innovative approaches to prevent and treat non-communicable diseases and injury.
How The George Institute can help
The George Institute’s activities focus on the health of millions of people, particularly those living in disadvantaged circumstances in both rich and poor countries alike.
Their strategy focuses on three key research priorities:
Better treatments: finding better treatments for the world’s biggest health problems
Better care: transforming primary health care to deliver better health to more people
Healthier societies: harnessing the power of governments, markets and communities to improve health.
If you are interested in getting involved in research to help to prevent, treat and find cures for disease, The George Institute, together with UNSW Sydney, has established Join Us — a national research register which matches people to studies that are relevant to them.
