The mission of the Barcelona Centre for International Health Research (CRESIB) is to find solutions to meet the new challenges facing global health. CRESIB was established 2006 by a group of first rate academic and biomedical research institutions: the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, the University of Barcelona, and the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS). It is also supported by the Generalitat de Catalunya. In May 2010, CRESIB became the research arm of the  Barcelona Institute for Global Health Foundation (ISGlobal), with which it forged an alliance with the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) to successfully develop a cutting-edge cluster of research expertise with capacity to address health challenges, including infectious diseases and non-communicable chronic diseases, with a strong focus on their environmental determinants. In 2013 this alliance has evolved into an integrated ISGlobal Institute.
