This multidisciplinary department includes world-leading science and operational staff focussing on the control of diseases that are arthropod-borne, water-borne or associated with poor environmental services and poverty – mainly in low- and middle-income countries. The department fosters world-class research which aims to improve our knowledge of disease dynamics, understand and change human behaviours, and develop and evaluate targeted public health interventions, all leading to better control of diseases worldwide. Our research is closely linked to global public health agencies and institutions, as well as the private sector, and is directed at addressing current health policy issues. The department also excels in knowledge transfer and the translation of research into policy and practice.
