OVERVIEW AND MISSION
Supported by the China Medical Board(CMB), Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) officially launched the Sun Yat-sen Global Health Institute (SGHI) on December 18th, 2015. While its core research members come from the School of Public Health, SGHI reaches out to the broader resources in social sciences through its affiliation with the Institute of State Governance at SYSU. We are dedicated to promoting health equity through cross-border, cross-disciplinary, and cross-institutional research, education, and practice in global Health.  We are committed to an institutional culture that fosters research transparency, collegiality, and teamwork.
