Global health is about improving health and reducing health disparities for all people worldwide through education, research, and practice. The Knowledge Centre for Global Health (KCGH) aims to support knowledge exchange in the field of global health. We achieve this by connecting healthcare and global health professionals, making global health knowledge more accessible, learning from it, and thereby promoting its application in Dutch healthcare.
The Netherlands has several knowledge institutions and organizations addressing global health issues. For KCGH, it is essential to be complementary by collaborating and facilitating the utilization of global health knowledge.
We connect experts, organizations, and healthcare providers on current themes in global health, with a focus in the coming years on planetary health and health equity. We also strive to raise awareness of global health issues among a broader audience.
Equal Opportunities in Health | We strive for equal opportunities in health for everyone worldwide, with specific attention to individuals and groups for whom this is least guaranteed.
Equality in Collaboration | We believe in the power of global and sustainable collaboration based on equality and reciprocity.
Inclusivity and Interdisciplinarity | Emphasising the value and importance of integrating diverse perspectives and experiences, with respect for human rights, to achieve better health for everyone. Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach to global health issues is essential.
