AIGHD performs three core functions:
- a platform for researchers to catalyze scientific excellence, interdisciplinary collaboration, and policy development within and across various faculties of the two Amsterdam universities
- a hub for education – at bachelors, masters and PhD level – across various faculties of the two Amsterdam universities
- a support facility aimed at integrated management of research and education projects within low- and middle-income countries focused on global health and development
How do we achieve our mission?
AIGHD achieves its mission and vision by accelerating theory into practice. It is not only important to generate research in global health and development, but also to accelerate this research into policy at the local, national, and international levels.
