Theme - Health emergencies

Working with national and international policy makers, technical partners and tightly integrated into global alert and response networks, we will develop analytical tools to respond to the complex health needs of populations in emergency situations resulting from infectious disease outbreaks, population displacements, climate change, natural disasters or conflict.

Specific objectives of our research on health emergencies are:

  • Utilising real-time analysis and intervention modelling to accelerate outbreak containment

  • Identifying high-impact interventions to protect vulnerable and displaced communities
  • Strengthening on-the-ground analytical capacity and data collection
  • Understanding the factors determining vulnerability and resilience to health emergencies
