The Department of Global Health and Development (GHD) focuses on novel and policy-relevant research and training to achieve impact at national and global levels. Our work, predominantly concerning low and middle-income countries, spans health policy and systems research, economic evaluation, gender violence and violence in childhood, and medical humanitarianism.

GHD members:

  • comprise over 120 research staff from a wide range of backgrounds, including economics, anthropology, epidemiology, mathematics, political science and medicine
  • take a highly multidisciplinary approach
  • develop long-term collaborative partnerships with research groups in low and middle-income countries (LMIC)
  • offer a vibrant and diverse research degree programme, with over 100 PhD and DrPH students from more than 40 countries
  • contribute to the many Master's programmes on public health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

The journal Health Policy and Planning is co-edited by GHD members Sandra Mounier-Jack and Virginia Wiseman. The journal publishes research on health policy and systems in low- and middle-income countries and provides an international forum for original and high-quality research that addresses questions pertinent to policy-makers, public health researchers and practitioners.
