In addition to the three programmes above, the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health within the Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is also home to the NDM Centre for Global Health Research (NDM-CGHR), a network of academic groups who work with collaborators from a large number of countries to generate evidence focussing on patients and addressing major public health issues globally. NDM-CGHR aims to build partnerships, advance equitable research, foster interdisciplinary research, build capacity and engage with decision makers. The NDM-CGHR is the base for postgraduate studies in tropical medicine, including the MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine. The NDM-CGHR include:

  • Africa Oxford Initiative (AfOX) is a cross-university platform based at the University of Oxford with the aim of facilitating equitable and sustainable collaborations between researchers based at the University of Oxford and African universities, as well as increasing the number of African students pursuing postgraduate degrees in Oxford
  • Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO) is a multidisciplinary coalition of the global infectious disease community. It provides an environment for equitable sharing of data, methods and infrastructure to generate evidence that improves outcomes for patients worldwide 
  • World Wide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN) is a collaborative data-sharing framework that proved it is possible to produce policy-changing evidence from historical data
  • Health Systems Collaborative works with low and middle-income country partners to improve and strengthen health services delivery and research globally. They employ methods spanning clinical epidemiology, social, organisational and implementation science
  • The Global Health Network (TGHN) is a WHO collaborating centre for research information sharing, e-learning, and capacity development. The vision is to build equity in where health research happens, who leads and who benefits 
  • Antimicrobial resistance, antimicrobial consumption and burden estimation (MICRoBE) and Drug-Resistant Infections and Disease Dynamics (DRIaDD). MICRoBE investigates antimicrobial resistance and antibiotic consumption to inform policy and interventions. DRIaDD aims to quantify the burden of drug resistant infections and other communicable disease globally, understand how resistance genes circulate in the population, and develop effective interventions
  • Tropical Immunology focusses on the theme ‘Vaccines for the Vulnerable’, with research spanning infection, immunology and vaccinology
  • Medicine Quality Research Group (MQRG) researches substandard and falsified (SF) medical products from a public health perspective, to better understand their epidemiology and impact on patients and communities, assessing techniques for detection of SF medicines and vaccines and exploring innovative forensics tools to estimate falsified medicine origin, to inform policy and action to improve global pharmaceutical product quality
