Centre for International Health

CIH’s research, teaching and capacity building in global health will contribute to improved health in the poorer countries of the world.

CIH collaborates with partners at the Department of Global Public Health and Primary Care and the Faculty of Medicine as well as across Departments and Faculties at the University of Bergen (UiB), and at many other national and international institutions. CIH is responsible for Global Challenges, one of three of UiB's cross-Faculty strategic focus areas. Learn more about the SDG Conference in February.

CIH hosts the Secretariats for the Norwegian Global Health Forum and the Global Health Norway. It also hosts a Centre of Excellence, the Centre for Intervention Science in Maternal and Child Health (CISMAC).

CIH has temporarily moved to Jekteviksbakken 31.
