The George Institute for Global Health was established in India in 2007 to generate high quality evidence and improve the health of millions of Indians by reducing premature deaths and disability from non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, kidney disease, stroke, mental health, and injuries.
TGI India’s research uses innovative approaches to create system-wide change for people at the bottom of the pyramid, develop affordable and scalable solutions, and to empower people to improve their own health.
TGI also conducts research and advocacy around areas traditionally neglected by the healthcare and policy community - the health of women and girls, adolescents and promoting healthy eating.
One of the top ranked medical research institutes in the world for impact, TGI India partners with over 60 national and international institutions such as the Public Health Foundation of India, the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, University of Hyderabad; and has affiliations with UNSW Sydney (The University of New South Wales), University of Oxford and Peking University.
With researchers in Delhi, Hyderabad and around India, TGI India is a terrific example of Australia and India working together to improve people's health.
