The aim of the work programme at LSHTM is to engage with local government stakeholders in the production of new evaluative research focussed on their evidence needs and appropriate to their decision-making processes, to improve action on the social determinants of health.
This is the first in a series of seminars on current issues in UK public health research and practice, and the role of research evidence in public policy.
