The Centre for International Health is a centre at at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (MOF), University of Bergen (UiB). CIH has a particular obligation to working interfacultary at the UiB and together with the departments at MOF. CIH aims to address health in low-income countries.
This is done through research, postgraduate teaching and advanced training in areas of importance for collaborating universities and other institutions in low-income countries. CIH is also involved in teaching in Global Health issues for undergradutate students in health.
In late November 2013, the coordinators from Makerere University and UiB met in Bergen to kick-start the process towards a new frame agreement.
Malnutrition is an underlying cause of more than 2 million global child deaths. HIV infection in infants is one of the reasons for poor growth and development.
Africa is technologically advanced in several areas, but woefully unprepared for technologies that could revolutionise its health care.
The Centre for Intervention Science in Maternal and Child Health (CISMAC) opened on 15 October.
UiB’s Centre for International Health celebrates a quarter century of pioneering development-related research.
