Welcome to Indigo
Our PhD Global Health students come from all over the world
The International Doctorate in Global Health (Indigo), is the first truly international doctoral programme in global health. The programme is offered by the International Doctoral School in Global Health, and coordinated by the Centre for Global Health at Trinity College, Dublin. Participating partners include Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia), University of Malawi, Ibadan University (Nigeria), Makerere University (Uganda), Columbia University (USA), Harvard Medical School (USA) and UK Cochrane Centre (UK).
Our programme offers a unique opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to study at some of the world’s leading universities and to conduct research in an African setting under an international panel of supervisors. The programme is aimed at health professionals from any part of the world. Indigo is designed to produce leaders in global health research, policy and practice.
The main focus of Indigo is on strengthening health systems in Africa, and three areas of research will be promoted: maximising human resources for health; managing communicable diseases; promoting equitable and inclusive access to health.
