Centre for Health Policy

The core purpose of the Centre for Health Policy is to harness the resources of Strathclyde University to play a leading role in reducing health inequalities in Glasgow, Scotland and internationally. Our aim is to transform public health and health policy through an innovative, cross-disciplinary model that brings together leading cross-disciplinary academics from across disciplines to co-produce research, knowledge exchange, teaching and intervention programmes with leading charities, public sector bodies and policy makers.

We have developed a series of purposeful partnerships with leading international universities and global health agencies. These provide a stimulating and valuable network of contacts and opportunities for the network of students and partners we collaborate with. The Centre is led by Lee Knifton and Neil Quinn and chaired by Professor Sir Harry Burns. Alongside our colleagues we harness our experience of practice, policy and academia.
