About

This Global Health Policy programme at The University of Edinburgh aims to provide rigorous postgraduate training to those interested in pursuing interdisciplinary research across public health and the social sciences.

Overview

It offers a structured training towards research for a PhD, providing the basis for a research career.

The Global Health Policy programme at The University of Edinburgh was established to carry out and disseminate research in health policy and provide exceptional postgraduate teaching.

Focusing on the principles of equity, access and universality, we have gained an international reputation for the quality and social relevance of our research.

GHPU staff have a history of conducting outstanding research and of playing a leading role in debates around the impact of current policies on public health and social inequalities.

We contribute to the world’s leading peer-reviewed journals and to professional journals, as well as the wider media.

Training and support

We offer PhD students a supportive research environment in which you’ll find senior academics and research fellows working together on team-based projects. You are encouraged to contribute to GHPU’s ongoing projects.

All postgraduates researching public health policy are encouraged to take part in seminars and to take advantage of training courses run at School, College and University level.

Programme Structure

Our research is organised around the following four intersecting themes, each of which is central to contemporary policy debates:
  • Commercial sector and public health
  • Health systems and global governance
  • Social determinants of health and public policy
  • Science, advocacy and health policy
