Where We Work

Global Health Leaders currently has fellows placed in India, South Africa, and Brazil. The program will soon expand to other countries across the globe.

This amazing fellowship is aiming to create a pool of skilled people that can work in both the private sector and the public sector - really looking at business issues while at the same time looking at public health issues - and I think this is very important.

Ahead of World Diabetes Day, new Lancet Commission on diabetes calls for urgent action to address global diabetes epidemic

Over 460 million people worldwide have diabetes, with around 80% of them living in low-income and middle-income countries. Despite high-level commitments to accelerate global action against non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the world is not on-track to reach Sustainable Development Goal 3.4 to reduce premature mortality from major NCDs by 30% between 2015 and 2030. This Lancet Commission on diabetes provides a blueprint for closing gaps in diabetes prevention, care, professional knowledge, and data that could save millions of lives. Modelling done by the Commission shows that use of a data-driven, multicomponent, integrated strategy could avert up to 800 000 premature deaths in the top 10 LMICs with the highest populations of people with diabetes. Implementing this Commission’s recommendations will require a whole-of-society approach to transform ecosystems and care environments. Access the full report for free (with free registration to
