Center for International Health

In 2009, the CIHLMU Center for International Health was selected as one of five Centers of Excellence for Devopment Cooperation (exceed) by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The Center is funded through this award by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) for a five year period. Within the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, four faculties and 12 institutes were involved in the planning and founding procedure. They continue to work together with more than 50 universities and ministries worldwide, with the World Health Organization and other stakeholders in the field of health.

The Department of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine was a founding institution of the CIHLMU Center for International Health. Within the CIHLMU, the Department is responsible for the implementation of the PhD program Medical Research – International Health. Its CIHLMU staff still accounts for the accomplishment of this program while supporting all other tasks of the CIHLMU.
