While safe and effective interventions exist many of those most in need lack access to appropriate health care, resulting in 11 million deaths per year and many more lives affected by reduced productivity and missed educational opportunities.
The Global Campaign for the Health Sustainability Development Goals, the Global Health Strategy and the International Health partnership affirm political will and commitment to improving health. Part of the response to the changing international landscape for international development has been enhanced demand for an investment in support of research, innovation and capacity building for development. Here, at the University of Edinburgh Global Health Academy, we believe in working together to support the creation, dissemination and the translation of global health knowledge across a global community of health practitioners, trainers, researchers and policy makers.
