The Faculty of Public Health and Policy (PHP) is focussed on the improvement of health throughout the UK and worldwide. It does this through research, teaching and the provision of advice in the areas of health policy, health systems and services, and individual, social and environmental influences on health.
Interests and activities embrace the health needs of people living in countries at all levels of development. The Faculty is the largest multi-disciplinary public health group in Europe. It uses multidisciplinary and multi-method approaches to generate new knowledge for specific contexts and test transferability to different settings, and engage with policymakers and providers of health care to ensure research is relevant and translated into practice.
