German Alliance for Global Health Research


he German Alliance for Global Health Research (GLOHRA) is a proponent for interdisciplinary and collaborative global health research. Addressing the complex challenges we face today – neglected tropical diseases and antibiotic resistance, but also mental illness and diabetes together with achieving universal health coverage and the human right to health – requires research approaches that defy traditional boundaries. GLOHRA seeks to foster exchange and forge new mechanisms of cooperation across institutions, disciplines, sectors and countries.

GLOHRA aims to strengthen global health research in Germany by connecting a community of qualified researchers, funding groundbreaking research projects and scientific events, supporting the next generation of researchers, and enhancing cross-sector collaboration. We place particular importance on cross-institutional and transdisciplinary efforts, knowing that our best research is collaborative. 

GLOHRA was launched in 2020 with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). Since 2022, additional measures to strengthen cooperation with partners in low and middle income countries have been funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ).


Just three years after GLOHRA took up work, the network has grown to include more than 1000 members from more than 180 research institutions.
