Founded in 1899 the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine mission remains unchanged: to improve health and health equity in the UK and worldwide; working in partnership to achieve excellence in public and global health research, education and translation of knowledge into policy and practice.
Each year the scope of our work grows, work which is made possible by the generosity of supporters. Whether it is a donation of £5 or £500,000, the impact is felt across the School and further afield.
The dedicated support of our donors enables us to offer scholarships to the students in most need, embark on ambitious research projects and, to take on exciting collaborations with our partners.
