The Department of Global Health & Social Medicine is turning 10 and to celebrate our academics and students are showcasing their global reach and the vital contributions made by our collaborators and partners.

Back in 2012, our founders sought to establish a community of scholars that recognise health as more than a medical matter. Today, an understanding of the social, political and economic determinants of health is an integral part of the conversation – but the journey does not end here.

Now in 2022, this exhibition takes a look at the research being undertaken by our academics and students across the world. It brings critical perspectives to addressing today's global health challenges and shows our community is able to make sustainable impacts in a decolonising world and how it's our partnerships that enable us to make a difference together.

Health is more than a medical matter. Who falls ill, who thrives, who lives and who dies is structured by social, political and economic realities. Ensuring the health of populations across the world is a political act – raising complex challenges of governance and demanding continual moral articulation.

It is thanks to the vibrant contributions from academics, staff and students that our department now has an international reputation for cutting edge interdisciplinary research and teaching in global health and social medicine.
