Multidisciplinary Centres of Excellence
School Centres draw on a wide-range of expertise from across the School to address global health challenges. They have long-standing and extensive partnerships, especially in low and middle-income countries, working on a broad range of health issues, such as gender violence and health, global mental health, nutrition, non-communicable diseases, HIV/ AIDS, TB and malaria, as well as health service delivery and health economics.
Our Centres include:
- MARCH : Maternal and Reproductive Child Health
- Malaria Centre
- TB Centre
- Centre for Global Mental Health
- Centre for Global Non-Communicable Diseases
“Our region is developing rapidly, and in particular we are investing in our health, research and science infrastructure with the support of funders and partners globally. The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a key partner in this work, and is helping national and local governments, universities and hospitals strengthen their research and capacity, and exchange knowledge and expertise. I am honoured to be associated with this world leading institution, and I know from personal experience how dedicated are the School’s staff, students and alumni – conducting research and taking practical action that saves lives and improves health in East Africa and worldwide.”
Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, Foreign Minister and former Minister of Health, Ethiopia, Alumnus and Honorary Fellow of the School
