We are a world-leading group of over 100 academics working on a diverse portfolio of health economics research, with work ranging from the development of innovative methods and empirical research, to policy engagement and impact.
Members have strong national and international partnerships and a wealth of experience in advising UK and other national governments, international agencies, and organisations.
The Global Health Economics Centre acts as the central body for staff and students across the School who study or apply health economics.
The Centre’s vision is forward-looking and emphasises cutting edge methodological development, rigorous empirical research, and working alongside policy and decision-makers to achieve policy impact. We seek to improve collaborations among economists and researchers in other disciplines at LSHTM and with research groups and policymakers in the UK and around the world. Centre members’ expertise places them at the forefront in building the capacity of health economists and their policy communities – and embracing respectful collaborations worldwide.
Our teaching programme includes research degrees and multiple masters degree programmes taught in London and through our distance learning programme.
