The University of Southampton
Centre for Global Health and Policy (GHAP)


GHaP works in partnership with colleagues from across the university and around the world developing a transformative global health and policy agenda through an interdisciplinary approach. We have well-developed links with institutions and researchers in many low- and middle-income countries, from Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Our research works towards the overall goal of ensuring access to sustainable health and wellbeing within a fair, equitable and inclusive governance. The Centre has expertise in understanding and addressing the local and global challenges of delivering the right to health and citizenship in vulnerable socio-economic contexts.

Human Rights, Health and Social Justice

Within this area, GHaP has a particular focus on poverty reduction and inequality, including gender inequalities, with particular strengths relating to health policy and rights of the poor.

Other global health research

A growing strand of research is on disability and how people with disabilities access health services in Lower and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
