Chatham House Centre Global Health Security (CGHS)

Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security



Facilitating Dialogue Between the International Affairs and Public Health





The Centre on Global Health Security (CGHS) at Chatham House examines key

global health challenges and how they manifest themselves as foreign policy and

international affairs problems. It seeks to help leaders around the world in

government, private foundations, international organizations and business reach wellinformed

decisions that improve global health security. It does so by conducting

independent research and analysis and facilitating dialogue between the international

affairs and public health communities. The Centre's work is focused on three ofteninterlinked

aspects of global health security: disease threats and determinants that

transcend borders; access to health-related products, technologies and services; and

international affairs, governance and health.




The mission of Chatham House is to be a world-leading source of independent

analysis, informed debate and influential ideas on how to build a prosperous and

secure world for all. Within Chatham House, CGHS seeks to contribute to

knowledge, stimulate discourse between the international affairs and public health

communities, and inform policy.

Monitoring & Evaluation Strategy


The work undertaken in each research area is overseen by an advisory group

comprised of leading experts in their respective fields of research. The Centre’s work

as a whole is reviewed by its Associate Fellows and Partners, and eventually, the

Centre will be informed by a much larger study group that will advise the Centre on

its work, provide peer review for the Centre’s research and analysis, and participate

in various Chatham-House and non-Chatham House events.
