Centre for Social Science and Global Health (SSGH) launches a call for activity grants for 2024. We invite you to submit proposals for activities to be carried out in 2024 with SSGH support.

The Centre for Social Science in Global health is an interdisciplinary platform that brings together social scientists and humanities scholars at the UvA who work on Global Health, broadly conceived. Global health is not just about health in the Global South, however defined. Rather scholars working on global health explore global(ized) dimensions of (ill) health and study processes of globalization and global flows, often with special attention to resulting inequities.    

The SSGH board hereby launches a call for activities. These activities are to be carried out in 2024.  SSGH awards small grants to its members to fund activities in the domain of Global Health, broadly conceived.
