Global health and infection

BSMS has a vibrant global health and infection research programme with academic links around the world.

Taking an inter- and multi-disciplinary approach, we work on existing and newly arising health issues, including neglected tropical and non-communicable diseases, infectious diseases (tuberculosis, malaria, HIV), antibiotic resistance, health risk behaviours and their determinants, occupational health policy and practice, and hospital-acquired infections in low-income settings.
