The Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre For Global Health, Population And Policy

The Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre for Global Health, Population, and Policy (PB Centre) is a collaboration between the University of Portsmouth and the University of Brawijaya in Malang, Indonesia. The key mission of the PB Centre is to improve the health and well-being of people globally through research, teaching and training.

Established in 2015 with the assistance of an Institutional Link grant from the British Council’s Newton Fund, we conduct world-class, evidence-based and policy-led research, on both basic and applied bio-social determinants of health.

We also teach advanced research methods – to enable future scientists to undertake more complex data analysis challenges – and provide postgraduate training and continuing professional development programmes to enable practising researchers to update their knowledge of population health.

Researchers from the University of Portsmouth include:

Research

The PB Centre has a unique team of interdisciplinary researchers, drawn from various faculties within both Universities.

Our geographic expertise covers most of the world’s low and middle income countries and our researchers have academic backgrounds in fields such as anthropology, public health, applied mathematics and human psychology.

Research areas of expertise include gender relations, family planning, food security, HIV transmission and domestic violence – and the range of methodological expertise within the centre includes impact evaluation, advanced statistical modelling and ethnographic methods.

Current and recent projects

The centre also recently completed a research project for the British Academy on the impact of low fertility on the health and well-being of women in developing countries, and concluded an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) seminar series on low fertility in developing countries, in collaboration with the University of Oxford and the Centre for Development Studies, Trivandrum.
