The Centre for Global Health Research builds on the success  The Cambridge-Africa Programme in fostering research collaborations.

The Cambridge-Africa Programme, established in 2008, is a working partnership between the University of Cambridge and ~40 universities/research institutes/centres/hospitals in 14 sub-Saharan African countries. It aims to strengthen Africa’s own capacity for a sustainable research and mentoring culture, by cultivating the talented individuals who will make this long-term goal a reality. The Programme emerged from a number of individual, long-term, collaborations between Cambridge and African researchers, and now consists of a range of proactive, coordinated, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary initiatives for high impact collaborative research that have capacity building as the essential common theme.

Based on the successes in health research of Cambridge-Africa the University decided to highlight and expand health research collaborations with academic institutions in low and middle income countries worldwide. Cambridge Africa has many partners which feature on their website, some of which are also featured below.
