Research Projects

The Global Health Council’s Research and Analysis Department, in collaboration with its global partners, supports and shapes the Council’s advocacy goals by identifying, reviewing, and synthesizing the most accurate evidence related to the Global Health Council’s priority health areas – child health, women’s health, HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases, and health systems. The department works with researchers, practitioners, advocates and policymakers to promote the use of evidence-based programming and research in policy decisions about health care.

Research Symposia

Although there are many venues for researchers to present the results of their studies – professional conferences, academic lectures or seminars, and scientific journals to name a few – few forums exist that facilitate the discussion of conducting research or that foster interdisciplinary dialogue.

The Global Health Council’s Research Symposium, traditionally held annually at its international conference, is a unique opportunity for researchers from around the globe to fully address the nature of their work. In addition, the Research Symposium provides an opportunity for multidisciplinary discussion of complex health issues.
