The research group UGHRIS (Uppsala Global Health Research on Implementation and Sustainability) is an interdisciplinary research group that brings together researchers and doctoral students in global health and sustainable development from various academic areas, including medicine, health care, anthropology and educational sciences.

Based on the health of women and children in a global perspective, UGHRIS focuses on key issues for Agenda 2030; how policy and evidence should be put into practice, how we build sustainable health systems and societies and how we can reduce inequalities in health and survival. An important part of this endeavor is to work with transformative learning and education for sustainable development. Changing ways of thinking and behavior is a necessity, whether it is to improve the care of newborn children or to meet social, economic or ecological challenges.
