Centre for MACH - MultidisciplinAry ResearCh in Health Science

Master Course in Global Health The Master Course in Global Health (MGH), coordinated by Prof. Gori and Prof. Raviglione and organized at MACH with the support of Intesa San Paolo, is a professional, specialty master of 1-year duration and is offered by the University of Milan in close collaboration with experts from major Institutions world-wide, including University of Geneva, Karolinska Instituten, Columbia University, Graduate Institute Geneva, World Health Organization and others. The Master Course aims to deepen knowledge and study contemporary global health issues from an interdisciplinary and inter-sectorial perspective. The MGH, conducted in English language, is open to post-graduate students from Italy and abroad coming from a variety of different backgrounds: from health and biomedical sciences to economics, sociology, anthropology, international relations, law, ecology, agronomy, diplomacy, political sciences, management etc.

The MGH mission is to provide students the toolbox to understand and analyse health issues with a focus on both their broader determinants and direct causes, while looking for innovative solutions that transcend sectors. The Master aims to prepare students and future leaders to work in different settings that include the public sector at national (e.g. ministries of health, foreign affairs, development cooperation, etc.) or local level (e.g. regional or district public health authorities), international organizations, nongovernmental and faith-based organizations active in health and development, public private partnerships, and the private sector engaged in health.

Global Health Centre Global health research is a programme that explores innovative ways of handling complex public health problems, embracing innovations in technology and epidemiological understanding, and exploring implementation challenges. The programme works with experts from partner institutions in Italy and world-wide and focuses on priority conditions in infectious diseases and beyond, determinants of health, and innovations in delivery of care and prevention.

GHC priorities in global health research include:

  • Innovations and new technologies in the response to major killers like tuberculosis and HIV
  • Antimicrobial resistance and response
  • Epidemiological and economic research and modelling for better policies
  • Poverty, migration and vulnerability as socio-economic determinants of access to health
  • Translation of technological advances into policy and practice
Banner of Global Health Centre

The new Centre for Multidisciplinary Research in Health Science (MACH), devoted to life sciences, is an international landmark and leading center for health research with a special, but not exclusive, interest in infectious diseases within a global and multidisciplinary perspective.
The Institute researchers tackle global health challenges, such as those determining illness and suffering among the poorest and marginalised populations, as well as those linked to innovative biomedical solutions from research in immunology and microbiology. Read more
