Who we are
The Barcelona Institute for Global Health, ISGlobal, is the result of an innovative alliance between ”la Caixa” and academic and government institutions.
The Institute was set up to contribute to the work undertaken by the international community to address global health challenges. ISGlobal has consolidated a hub of excellence in research and medical care that has its roots in work first started in the world of health care by the Hospital Clínic and the MAR Health Park 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. ISGlobal is a member of CERCA, the Catalan Government’s network of research centres.
