An introduction to the IMPACT programme

Welcome to the IMPACT in South Asia programme. 

IMPACT is an NIHR Global Health Research Group: ‘Improving Outcomes in Mental and Physical Multimorbidity and Developing Research Capacity in South Asia’.

Hosted by the University of York, IMPACT is a collaboration between partners in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the UK. The group includes researchers, clinicians, policy makers and patient and public representatives.

The aim of the IMPACT programme is to address the challenges of mental and physical multimorbidity. This affects some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in low and middle income countries.

Our goals are to:

  • Improve health and reduce deaths associated with diabetes, heart and lung diseases in people with severe mental illness (i.e. schizophrenia and bipolar disorder)
  • Reduce depression and anxiety in people with chronic physical health conditions.
