The Faculty of Public Health and Policy (PHP) is focussed on the improvement of health throughout the UK and worldwide. We do 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. We run a range of popular and highly respected MSc courses, short courses and CPD.
The Faculty has around 250 academic staff and 140 research students. We are the largest multi-disciplinary public health group in Europe. We use 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.
Multi-disciplinarity is the hallmark of our research, teaching and engagement. We encompass the disciplines of epidemiology, public health medicine, economics, political science, international relations, anthropology, sociology, history, psychology, statistics and mathematics. We have one of the world’s largest global groupings of social scientists working on health - read our social sciences publication to find out more.
Around 100 of our staff and students undertake health economics research and our economists have a wealth of experience in advising UK and other national governments, international agencies and organisations - read our health economics publication to find out more.
The Faculty is fully committed to the Athena SWAN Charter and holds a silver award.
