Institute for Global Health Delivery & Diplomacy

The Institute for Global Health Delivery and Diplomacy (IGHDD), a collaboration between UCSF Global Health Sciences and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, partners with local government leaders and research institutions to catalyze the transformation of health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. Studying the means by which effective interventions are defined and implemented and drawing on the lessons learned through this research, the IGHDD aims to improve implementation of existing programs and help leaders around the world better design and manage contextually appropriate health programs and policies.

We also work with the leaders of large health care systems, primarily ministries of health, to identify specific areas of work to which the methodologies of implementation research can be applied. This approach provides support for existing national strategies while introducing a culture of data-driven decision-making.
