Global Health

Global HealthGlobal health research embodies research on health problems related to challenges that particularly affect people in developing countries. The Faculty of Medicine, NTNU, has decided to increase its investment in global health. We are aware of good research, teaching and clinical activity going on in Mid Norway that is oriented towards developing countries. Many scientists in this region have active collaborations with selected institutions and individual scientists in developing countries. The faculty would like to contribute to more cooperation, networking and professional experience in this area. The seminar aims to increase this cooperation, while providing professional input and inspiration for further research.
