What we do

The global health landscape is changing rapidly as a consequence of a myriad of factors, including population growth, ageing, lifestyle changes and new pandemics of chronic disease and injury. This is placing unprecedented demands on already overstretched healthcare resources in both high- and low-income countries.

We are focused on the global health challenges that cause the greatest loss of life, the greatest impairment of life quality and the most substantial economic burden, particularly in resource-poor settings.

You won't find us in laboratories or working with microscopes, but instead we are working with communities, clinicians, hospitals, healthcare providers, governments and other organisations engaged in the business of delivering healthcare.

We are committed to undertaking research and identifying practical approaches towards better treatments, better care and healthier societies.

Our priorities

We develop innovative, affordable and evidence-based solutions to the world’s biggest health problems by conducting large-scale clinical trials, epidemiological studies, health systems research, and population-based studies.

We look beyond single diseases, across the life course, to identify patient-centred approaches to care that can be implemented at scale.

Our research projects

The George Institute engages in projects in 45 countries, in partnership with an international network of experts and collaborators, and is affiliated with leading universities

Our projects are looking at the best ways to prevent and treat disease, improve access to evidence-based care, develop policy, and implement and scale up proven solutions for the benefit of millions of people.

Our publications

With over 8,000 publications and other academic outputs, we are building much needed evidence to effectively and sustainably transform care and health systems globally.

Our work is regularly published in leading medical journals, such as The Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association, and is influencing guidelines and practice worldwide.
