About us

UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

At the heart of the Centre's mission is undertaking research to further progress towards the achievement of the health related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (before 2015 Millennium Development Goals - MDGs); alleviating poverty, improving infant and child mortality, reducing maternal mortality, and reducing the spread and economic and social impact of HIV/AIDS.

A hallmark of the Centre's research is the combination of statistical analysis of large quantitative datasets, such as the Demographic & Health Surveys or Living Standard Measurement Surveys, with rigorous policy analysis.

GHP3 carries forward the work of the major DFID-funded Opportunities and Choices research programme in reproductive health that ended in 2005 and the Centre for AIDS Research, which it has subsumed.
