The German Alliance for Global Health Research is a research platform that supports interdisciplinary, international and cross-sectoral global health research. 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 – require informed, high-quality, and scientific collaboration.
Our mission is to strengthen Germany’s contribution to global health research by connecting a community of qualified researchers, funding groundbreaking projects that address pressing global health challenges, and by supporting the next generation of researchers. We place particular importance on cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary efforts, knowing that our best research is collaborative. Launched in February 2020, the Alliance is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.
