Many staff at LSHTM are engaged in research which makes a significant contribution to health in the UK, in areas such as: management of health services and systems; public health, lifestyle and environment; infectious disease monitoring and control; prevention and control of non-communicable diseases; and sexual health. Partnership is key to this work, and over the years we have developed productive and valuable collaborative links with partners in government, the NHS and its executive agencies, Public Health England, local authorities, Royal Colleges, other universities, health policy think-tanks, charities and funders.
