The Office for Global Health




The Office for Global Health works with the University of Sydney’s Health Faculties to internationalise the research we undertake, the experience of our students and staff, and our approaches to learning and teaching. We also aim to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our region by engaging in health projects with some of our nearest neighbors.

The University of Sydney’s Faculties of Health began collaborating on international issues in 1998 with the advent of the College of Health Sciences. The Faculties of Health International Office, established in 2007, now called the Office for Global Health, continues this work and aims to provide analysis, leadership, program development, support and advice to the University’s health faculties, their staff and students.
