The George Institute for Global Health is a global medical research institute that focuses on non-communicable diseases and injury.  With centres in four countries (Australia, China, India and the UK) and offices and staff in many others, we are monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. 

As a global organisation experienced in operating across time zones with flexible working hours, we are well suited to working remotely and continuing to deliver on our mission to improve the health of millions of people worldwide. 

A major focus for us is the safety and well-being of our staff across the globe and we are putting in place plans to ensure they are supported in their work and life, tailored for each setting we are in.   

The George Institute will be monitoring external events and adjusting accordingly, with our staff, partners and research programs, front of mind.

Building back better after COVID-19: The research agenda

Building back better after COVID19

The importance of chronic disease co-morbidity in terms of the impact of COVID-19 infection is a major learning from the pandemic, which has highlighted the need to escalate the battle against NCDs, not just for its own sake, but to build resilience and reduce the impact of this and future infectious disease outbreaks.

The George Institute is working on a series of analyses and outputs to highlight different aspects of the intersection of the pandemic with NCDs; the importance and impact of COVID-19 on NCD prevention and management in different contexts; and key research questions and innovation opportunities emerging as a consequence.
