SIGHT was established in January 2017, at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. SIGHT’s purpose is to promote an interdisciplinary approach, to strengthen and bridge Swedish research and education, and to provide a scientific basis for national and transnational collaborative policy work, in the field of global health.
A Swedish milestone was reached as the report “Sweden’s Work on Global Health – implementing the 2030 Agenda” was launched at the Government Offices, October 2018. Just after the launch, SIGHT met with Anders Nordström, Ambassador for Global Health at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, one of the key players in the creation of the report.
