Trans Global Health PhD Programme

Trans Global Health Call for PhD Applications An Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate programme coordinated by Athena Institute, VU University 

The Trans Global Health programme educates the new generation of global health scientist able to apply transdisciplinary research approaches to meet today’s health challenges. The studies conducted within the current programme will contribute to improved access to care and prevention; quality health services to ensure better health outcomes; innovative care constellations that build on patient/community engagement as well as public-private partnerships. Re-orientation of the current global health emphasis on infectious diseases by incorporating the challenges of non-health solutions will be realised through synergistic, transdisciplinary and evidence-based research. The programme will place specific attention on vulnerable populations.

The programme enables PhD students to get a double degree, from two different partner institutes in two different European countries: in the Netherlands – VU University Amsterdam, University of Amsterdam, or Academic Medical Centre at the University of Amsterdam (AMC); France – University Bordeaux Segalen; Belgium – Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp; or Spain – University of Barcelona Institute for Global Health.
