The George Institute for Global Health
The George Institute for Global Health is an internationally renowned research organisation with a mission to improve the health of billions of people worldwide. Through research we identify new evidence to prevent and treat noncommunicable diseases and injury, particularly among those living in disadvantaged circumstances. Our findings are used to drive change, steering towards our ultimate vision – a world where all people live longer, healthier lives
The Institute’s Women’s Health Program was launched in 2018, aiming to promote a lifecourse approach to addressing women’s health issues. The aims of the programme are to:
- Address the leading causes of death and disability for women, specifically non-communicable disease and injury.
- Improve our understanding of the biological and social differences between women and men and how those differences affect health.
- Address other important women-specific health issues.
The MESSAGE project is delivered by a team at The George Institute for Global Health UK, in partnership with Imperial College London. The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
