Global Health & Humanitarianism
The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research works to improve clinical public health effectiveness of humanitarian response through scientific research, technological innovation, and critical perspectives which speak to the realities of contemporary humanitarian policy and practice.
We work in two directions:
- Improve the public health effectiveness of humanitarian response through scientific research and technological innovation
- Understand the root causes of humanitarian emergencies and the role of the humanitarian sector in addressing it
Collaborate with us
The Dahdaleh Institute aims to have real, significant impact in humanitarian practice, a goal which compels us to partner with those in the field and start from the questions they ask.
How we work
Organizations or individuals working in the humanitarian field identify an operational challenge that is beyond their current capacity to address. Drawing on in-house expertise and bringing on additional partners, we collaboratively build innovative and practical solutions, and see the projects through to implementation.
Problem-Solving In Action
For examples of problem-solving projects carried out in partnership with operational organizations, see Chemical Water Quality & Malnourished Child Health, Health Emergency Data Science, and Safe Water Optimization Tool.
If you work in the humanitarian sector and are facing an operational challenge, we want to hear from you. Contact Global Health & Humanitarianism Research Fellow Syed Imran Ali at [siali]@yorku.ca to introduce yourself and to provide a brief description of your challenge.
