Help us transform health for all

Our Institute is made up of a multidisciplinary group of talented people with a common ambition to empower people to transform their health and that of others. It’s this drive, and the collaborative nature of everything that we do, which helps us tackle health challenges across the globe. 

IGHI recognises the importance of having a diverse workforce, who bring a diverse set of ideas, skills and experiences. To make a real difference in global health, we strive to have an institute that listens to everyone’s voices. No one should be left behind in healthcare and this cannot be achieved without an inclusive environment.     

We proudly support Imperial’s ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy: Inclusive excellence’. The strategy actively seeks to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion are integrated across the College and positive action is made to improve the opportunities and experiences of underrepresented groups.
