The RGHI builds bridges, across disciplines, and from research to practice. Have a look at our participating institutes.
The Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) is leading in national and international research in the fields of health economics, health care governance, social medical sciences, health care management, health law and health insurance. The research at ESHPM is multi-disciplinary and focuses on three areas. The management and organization of health care delivery, competition and regulation in the health care sector, and quality and efficiency in health care. The research performed by the institute is frequently used by policy makers in different countries around the world.
The International Institute of Social Studies is an international graduate school of policy-oriented critical social science. It brings together students and teachers from the Global South and the North in a European environment.
The Institute of Housing and Urban Development is engaged in all the major issues of the fast global urban development, such as housing, slum development, water, sanitation, governance, many of which also pertain to health.
Erasmus School of Economics is home to the other half of the Health Economics group at EUR. Their work focuses solely on the health (and behavioural) aspects of economics, often within the Global Health context.
Erasmus University hosts one of the most highly acclaimed medical centers in Europe, Erasmus MC. Its Department of Public Health is one of the world’s leading centers on health inequalities research. The same department, together with the departments of Virology and Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and the Spread Academic Global Health Platform are world leaders in infectious disease research – spanning from laboratory research to mathematical modeling.
By working with partners worldwide and locally, we strengthen evidence-based policy making and practice while broadening the evidence base by learning from practitioners and policy makers. RGHI partners with the City of Rotterdam and the Municipal Health Council of Rotterdam (GGD), with four international NGOs (Cordaid, KNCV TB Foundation, HealthNet TPO and AMREF).
