A person's life expectancy should not be determined by where they're born 

ISGlobal works to promote equality in health throughout the world.

  • ISGLOBAL BARCELONA

    The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is the fruit of an innovative alliance between ”la Caixa”, academic institutions and government bodies to contribute to the efforts undertaken by the international community to address the challenges in global health.

  • WHAT WE DO

    ISGlobal is a consolidated hub of excellence in research that has grown out of work first started in the world of health care by the Hospital Clínic and the Parc de Salut MAR and in the academic sphere by the University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University. The pivotal mechanism of its work model is the transfer of knowledge generated by scientific research to practice, a task undertaken by the institute’s Education and Policy and Global Development departments.

    Its ultimate goal is to help close the gaps in health disparities between and within different regions of the world.

    All this is possible thanks to a team of over 400 people working in more than 40 countries, generating in excess of 450 scientific publications and training over 900 professionals every year.

  • OUR MISSION

    ISGlobal's mission is to improve global health and promote health equity through excellence in research and the translation and application of knowledge.

    ISGlobal was funded to become a world class research and translation centre in Global Health working towards a world in which all people can enjoy Health.

  • KEY AREAS OF ACTION

    Research to generate knowledge and strategies about health worldwide.

    Training & Education to transfer all this knowledge to people who can apply it in the field, in any community affected in the world.

    Policy and Global Development to consolidate actions based on the knowledge generated and to transform the healthcare situation worldwide.
