Led by Professor Louise Ackers, our work has critiqued the very concept of global health encouraging a more genuinely transdisciplinary approach to respond to health system challenges in Low- and Middle-Income Countries [is there a link to a report or publications for this]. A significant body of our research on professional voluntarism and student mobilities has informed national and international policy and created an evidence base to support more sustainable and democratic approaches to foreign engagement in Overseas Development Assistance. KHP works closely with our Operational Partner, Knowledge for Change, a UK and Ugandan registered NGO to co-create and mobilise knowledge on the Ugandan health system. This includes substantive projects on maternal and new-born health; bio-medical engineering; anti-microbial resistance and rehabilitation services underpinned by a constant emphasis on health systems.
