International Development Research @ Cambridge


Health is essential to sustainable development. Improving healthcare and general well-being has therefore been a significant challenge, especially in the developing world. Undertaking research that spans from fundamental to applied science, covering topics that affect human health and wellbeing could aid the discovery of innovative approaches to help tackle diseases. In this way new policies can be developed based on the highest quality research which could help strengthen health systems. The overarching aim is to reach the world’s most vulnerable and ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all.
