Olomouc University Social Health Institute (OUSHI)
In January 2016, Centre for Global Health Director, Prof Mac MacLachlan, visited Olomouc University Social Health Institute (OUSHI), Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic, to consolidate links between CGH and OUSHI, where he will also be a visiting professor. The link will initially focus on research and staff exchange concerned with exploring how people cope with chronic disease and disability, and how they use health and assistive technologies. This collaboration will also help to build CGH’s European network. Prof MacLachlan met with Prof Peter Travel (Director) and Dr Lenka Slepickova of OUSHI, as well as `Dr Ivana Oborna and Dr Hyneck Bohm of the International Relations Office.
