CLiMB Ghana

As part of our commitment to support healthy lives around the world we are building links with institutions in Ghana.

In May 2023 we hosted a lifestyle intervention research and capacity building workshop at Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) - University of Ghana, focusing on nutrition, weight, and physical activity behaviours.

At the workshop we developed new collaborations between CLiMB, other UK and European institutions and universities in Ghana (University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Health and Allied Research and University for Development studies), and Kenya (The Technical University of Kenya) to identify interventions and policies to prevent, treat and manage the growing burden of non-communicable diseases in Africa.

In May 2024 we returned to Ghana to delve into the findings of our first research project and to discuss our next project.

The visit coincided with a wider Loughborough University delegation to Ghana and Nigeria, strengthening the institution’s links in the region across the research themes of climate change, health and sports.
