Brain and Mind Institute; Internal Medicine (East Africa)
It is crucial that the global health community address racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic inequities that impact health outcomes and wellbeing. Regrettably, institutions in the high-income countries (HICs) of the Global North disproportionately influence how and what is researched, resulting in the exclusion of cultural contexts and priorities of researchers in the low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) of the Global South from global health leadership and the benefits of research.
