About Us

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Global Health Institute (SDGHI) aims to advance health and well-being in Southeast Asia and beyond. Working in collaboration with partners, the Institute seeks to strengthen health systems, improve health outcomes and increase health security.  Launched in 2018, SDGHI harnesses the capacity of SingHealth, the largest group of health care institutions in Singapore, and the Duke-NUS Medical School, to advance interdisciplinary global health research and capacity development across the region.



To advance health and well-being in Southeast Asia and beyond.



To address pressing health challenges and develop future leaders in global health through innovative solutions, programmes and partnerships.



Our Approach

SDGHI is functionally organised into five core programmes and four cross-cutting enabling platforms.

These aim to foster greater coherence and alignment of global health activities within the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre; serve as a coordinating mechanism for partnerships with national, regional and global actors; and facilitate new areas of work that respond to pressing global health priorities.


Our Partners

SDGHI perennially cements and cultivates invaluable multidisciplinary partnerships across the region. We are committed to working with our partners to develop local and regional talent, cultivate a strong research culture and ensure sound operational processes. Within Singapore, SDGHI is collaborating with institutions in the academic, non-profit, government and private sectors to expand its work within and beyond the medical sciences to broaden its impact on global health.
