About Us

global ideas is an interdisciplinary community of global health innovators


We exist to help communities in the Asia-Pacific make practical improvements to their own health. We believe there is immense potential to join the dots across disciplines to think differently, and we are united by a desire to see better health for all.

We see that lasting solutions to health challenges need much more than doctors or health professionals. But the complexity of global health can be daunting. And whether we’re artists or anthropologists, engineers or entrepreneurs, doctors or researchers, our day to day jobs may not bring us into contact with others who have the complementary areas of expertise and resources that can help us translate our ideas into real-world impact.

We champion interdisciplinary collaboration, and we bridge the gap from ideas to impact. We connect the right people and the right opportunities. We educate, providing practical know-how and access to established global health specialists. And we facilitate peer-to-peer learning and the design of nimble and durable solutions in partnership with local communities.

Please join us in our pursuit to help communities in our region to make practical improvements to their health.
