Improving the health and wellbeing of our societies, together

 

 

Welcome to Cambridge Public Health. Our aim is to tackle society's most pressing public health problems through international collaboration.

From disease, to hunger, to mental health, we are working to improve research evidence, capacity building and our impact to build a better world for us all through ten interconnected pillars and themes.

Impact

Based at the University of Cambridge, an international leader in public health research, we are working across disciplines and with people to understand, develop new approaches to support better action and policies that address society’s major challenges. 

Capacity building

Our researchers come from a wide range of countries and academic fields. Their areas of interest span the social sciences, medicine, mathematics, engineering and humanities, to help us build the capacity to improve all areas of public health.

Logo

Our multicoloured, interweaved logo represents our commitment to working together, whatever our backgrounds and subjects, in pursuit of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals.
