Global Health and Development

Publication sharing

Using Flinders Academic Commons to strengthen the Global Health and Development (GHD) Initiative


The GHD website allows authors to share knowledge that addresses the health-related objectives in the Post-2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and enhance our understanding of:

  • health care systems;
  • countries’ progress towards universal health coverage;
  • care models; and
  • practices and health issues in a global context with an emphasis on less developed countries.

The written materials will be made available through the Flinders Academic Commons database.


  • Enable cross-disciplinary and cross-national cooperation to address health-related objectives in the Post-2015 SDGs.
  • Improve the understanding of different health care systems, policies, care models and practices.
  • Help develop the Internationalisation of Curriculum.
  • Allow staff to share expertise and experiences.
