Improving health and wellbeing worldwide
The Centre for Health Policy produces high-quality analyses of current health policy issues and supports the development of policies to enhance the effectiveness and sustainability of public health systems.
The focus of the Centre for Health Policy is on three fundamental health policy challenges:
- Finance – how to fund healthcare delivery, set against increasing expectations and demand
- Inequalities – how to reduce health inequalities while improving overall population health
- Demography – how to design and deliver healthcare to meet the needs of key groups
The Centre for Health Policy leads research and innovation programmes under two, broad themes: Health Systems and Services, and Public Health and Inequalities and draws on expertise across the University in Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Strathclyde Business School to help inform the development of effective and affordable public health policies.
With programmes ranging from wellness and community health, healthy Future Cities to addiction, youth, migrant and mental health, the Centre for Health Policy provides an important research and knowledge hub to enable external bodies and organisations to tap into the breadth and depth of health-related expertise available at Strathclyde.
The Centre works in partnership with the following University centres:
- The Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland(CELCIS)
- Health Technologies at Strathclyde(HTaS)
- The Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC)
