UNESCO Chair Global Health and Education Health Education, Prevention, Health Promotion, Children and Young People


Founding partners

The development of the UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education community and the implementation of it’s activities are made possible thanks to the support of two of it’s founding organisations: MGEN and Groupe Vyv.

With nearly 4 million people insured, the MGEN group is a major player in social protection and the leading public service mutual. As the leading mutual in health and social protection in France, the VYV group has a real social commitment, capable of providing ever more supportive and innovative solutions to build a more equitable and socially responsible society.

The MGEN Foundation for Public Health was created in 2002 by the MGEN, a French mutual health insurer. The Foundation’s multidisciplinary team conducts scientific research in four areas of public health: “Health economics”, “Occupational health”, “Prevention and health promotion ” and “Cognitive and functional ageing”. The research studies, some of which are carried out in partnership with other research teams, are published in both national or international scientific journals.


The development and implementation of specific activities of the UNESCO Chair are made possible thanks to the support of our partners.

The mission of the Sanofi Espoir Foundation is to contribute to reducing health inequalities among populations that need it most by applying a socially responsible approach. 

The URPS-CD ARA (Union Régionale des Professionnels de Santé – Chirurgiens-Dentistes Libéraux d’Auvergne Rhône-Alpes) is the interlocutor and partner of the institutions for all questions concerning health organisation in the region. The URPS-CA ARA and the UNESCO Chair share common ambitions and values in the field of Oral Health Promotion.
