We are a group of over 50 staff have internationally recognised expertise in a wide range of disciplines including health economics, policy analysis, public health, epidemiology and social science. HESA has a strong track record in the production and communication of rigorous, policy-relevant research, conducted through long-term collaborations with Southern research partners. We endeavour to contribute to methodological developments in the disciplines in which we work, and to encourage and support multidisciplinary thinking and analysis.

We also contribute to a vibrant teaching programme in health economics and health systems through supervision of over 25 research degree students, teaching on the LSHTM in-house and distance learning Masters programme, and through providing short courses in health economics and financing for international organisations such as UNICEF and DFID.
