The Barcelona Institute for Global Health, ISGlobal, is the fruit of an innovative alliance between the "la Caixa" Foundation", academic institutions and government bodies to contribute to the efforts undertaken by the international community to address the challenges in global health. ISGlobal is a consolidated hub of excellence in research that has grown out of work first started in the world of health care by the Hospital Clínic and the Parc de Salut MAR and in the academic sphere by the University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University. The pivotal mechanism of its work model is the transfer of knowledge generated by scientific research to practice, a task undertaken by the institute’s Education and Policy and Global Development departments. Its ultimate goal is to help close the gaps in health disparities between and within different regions of the world. Merger with CREAL  On June 30, 2016, the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL), a ten year-old institution of excellence in advanced epidemiological research on environmental factors that affect human health, completed its integration into ISGlobal. The merger of both centres into a larger ISGlobal with increased capacities is the result of a strategic alliance that started in 2013.     As a result, the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) has successfully consolidated a cutting-edge cluster of research expertise with capacity to address health challenges, including infectious diseases and non-communicable chronic diseases, with a strong focus on their environmental determinants.
