THE LAUNCH OF THE CROATIAN CENTRE FOR GLOBAL HEALTH

The Croatian Centre for Global Health has recently been founded at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Split, Croatia. Its co-founders, Professor Ana Marusic and Professor Igor Rudan, are both hoping that the Centre will help to re-integrate Croatian biomedical science into global trends, improve its international visibility, and help their nation to respond to challenges for health policy formulation and development in the time of globalization. Professor Ana Marusic is the editor-in-chief of Croatian Medical Journal and the President of the International Council of Science Editors, while Professor Igor Rudan is a consultant of the World Health Organization, UNICEF and Global Forum for Health Research and the co-ordinator of several ongoing international research projects. The new Centre will include the Departments for International Scientific Communication, International Health Policy, Large Population Studies, Eco-genetics and the first regional link to international Cochrane collaboration. The Center already developed strong international links with the Johns Hopkins University, Universities of Toronto and Edinburgh, and Medical Research Council in Cape Town.
