Research Areas

Our work requires a range of disciplines in addition to biological, clinical, epidemiological and public health approaches. Social and management sciences, economics, mathematics, statistics and modelling, are among the many disciplines that bring new solutions to major health challenges.

The idea behind Warwick Centre for Global Health is to forge new research ideas and also add value to existing ideas. Some areas in which we have been forging new research ideas are the following:

  • Improving health in slums
  • Global Digital Health
  • Remote Consulting for Healthcare
  • The use of traditional healers
  • Improving education and training for Community Health Workers and economic and behaviours motivations of CHWs
  • Hospital / community interface
  • Cardiac disease in HIV patients
  • Collection and analysis of costs faced by patients and health systems associated with tuberculosis , asthma and COPD
  • Infectious disease modelling

We are also working with partners in low and middle income countries to add value to existing ideas in some of the following areas:

  • Nutrition in slums
  • Access to care for sick children
  • Roll out of national programmes in Kenya such as new treatments for malaria
  • The education of clinical assistants in Rwanda
  • Developing health economics research capacity in low and middle income countries
