The current global dispensation; particularly on-going concerns with emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, mental health and the epidemiological transition that has been witnessed over the past two-to-three decades, have led to the creation of this new group at KCCR. Though the debate as to what constitutes Global Health continues to rage, the link between poverty and health has been well established, and success in addressing either of them is not possible without understanding and addressing the two. Poverty cannot be appropriately and sustainably addressed without good health. It is this understanding of the link between poverty and health that led to health receiving prominence in the formulation of the SDGs and remaining high on the agenda of the G20 over the past 3 years. Change in lifestyles influenced by globalization, which has been fuelled by an unprecedented high rate and ease in both physical and media-based cross-continental exchange, have resulted in a quickly evolving epidemiological transition (both infectious and non-communicable diseases). Although inherently broad and multidisciplinary, Global Health and Infectious Disease research allows highly motivated researchers from multiple disciplines to work together to contribute to answering globally-relevant research questions applying scientifically rigorous and innovative methods.
The Global Health and Infectious Diseases Research Group has the following core objectives:
- To enhance the research networking capacity and infrastructure at KCCR and make substantive contributions to the promotion of interdisciplinary collaborative research at KCCR and KNUST by members of the university community, researchers across the country and sub-region, KCCR’s research partners, and the wider international community.
- To enhance synergies between research, teaching and learning by providing an opportunity for both graduate and undergraduate students to receive insight and practical training in both laboratory and field research. This is expected to generate passion and commitment to research, facilitate the early identification of talent, and provide an opportunity for mentorship and career advancement towards leadership in Global Health and Infectious Disease research and development.
- To provide knowledge through high quality research which will benefit the global health community by improving the clinical management, control and prevention of infectious diseases, the quality of health service delivery, and ultimately health systems and health outcomes.
