Working under the umbrella of the Umeå Centre for Global Health Research, our research falls into three broad profiles: Emerging global health challenges; health systems and policy; and Northern Sweden health and welfare. We embrace a multi-disciplinary 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.
