Our expertise in the areas of public health and infectious disease research is well-established at home and around the world. This expertise can be found in a wide range of faculties.
The newly created Centre for Global Public Health is focused on helping improve public health systems, programs and activities in communities around the world. The work our researchers have done in the area of HIV/AIDS has changed the way the world understands and treats that devastating disease. In addition, the University of Manitoba is recognized as a leader in Aboriginal health research. Our researchers have also pioneered the use of health information databases to identify determinants of health and recommend policy changes. The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy is an internationally-recognized centre of excellence in this field.
