The Global Health Institute aims to perform high quality research on a wide range of global public health problems. Epidemiological methods are used to ensure optimal design and analysis. Qualitative or mixed methods are used when formative research is needed or to ensure optimal integration of the cultural context into research and implementation. Health economics or mathematical modelling is performed. Health systems research and implementation research is performed in collaboration with our international partners, local communities, and Departments of Health. The GHI works closely with other units of the department and faculty, specialists of the University Hospital 'UZA', the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp (ITM) and partner universities, mainly through projects and activities funded by the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR-UOS), The Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), EUHorizon related funds (IHI, EDCTP, …) and other international donors.
