The Trans Global Health programme is a part of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Programme and focuses on health threats to vulnerable populations that often face complex, interwoven problems such as poverty, inequity and co-morbidity. Vulnerable populations are not only found in low-income countries, but also in Europe where groups with limited access to health services are growing. The studies conducted within the current programme will contribute to improved access to care and prevention; quality health services to ensure better health outcomes; innovative care constellations that build on patient/community engagement as well as public-private partnerships; and re-orientation of the current global health emphasis on infectious diseases by incorporating the challenges of non-communicable diseases and ageing. Integrated and effective global health solutions will be realised through synergistic, transdisciplinary and evidence-based research.
The programme enables PhD students to get a double degree, from two different partner institutes in two different European countries: in the Netherlands VU University Amsterdam (VU), University of Amsterdam (UvA), or Academic Medical Centre at the University of Amsterdam (AMC); France Université de Bordeaux; Belgium Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp (ITM); or Spain University of Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal).
The programme is coordinated by the Athena Institute of the VU University.
