Our Work

Global Health in the 21st century is characterized by complexity, connectedness, turbulence, and adaptability. It is a constellation of economic, environmental, political, social, technological and demographic phenomena. The Dahdaleh Institute focuses these huge concerns through three themes and with a clear priority: the ethical application of transdisciplinary research.

Research Themes

Our work takes place under three research themes:

Planetary Health

Planetary Health research calls urgent attention to the human health cost of environmental degradation and invites deeper reflection on the relationship between human and environmental wellbeing.
