United Nations University objectives
The United Nations University (UNU) is an international community of scholars engaged in research, capacity development, and dissemination of knowledge in furtherance of the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations. The mission of UNU is to contribute, through research and capacity building, to efforts to resolve the pressing global problems that are the concern of the United Nations and its Member States.
UNU International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH)
UNU-IIGH is one of 14 research and training centres that comprise the UNU system. As a UN think tank, the mission of UNU-IIGH is to build knowledge and capacity for decision-making by UN agencies, programmes, and Member States about global health issues. The aim is to contribute to the development and strengthening of health services policy frameworks and management actions, particularly for people in developing countries, and to support implementation of promotive and preventive approaches to human health. UNU-IIGH’s research and capacity building in global health relates specifically to informing the policy debates and directions that ensure that in keeping with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) “no one is left behind”.
Fellows at UNU-IIGH are expected to develop and lead programmes of research and capacity building, with a focus on generating knowledge and informing critical policy debates across UN agencies and member states.
To that end, we are looking for outstanding researchers who can work with relevant partners and stakeholders to develop new global interdisciplinary programmes in global public health that address issues of marginalisation from access to health and health care (age and ageing, gender, forced migration, indigeneity, geography, universal health coverage, global health governance, reproductive health, and human rights).
