Health policy and systems research at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine has a range of distinctive features contributing to its leading role globally. Research, policy engagement and capacity-building take place in high, middle and low income countries. This enables colleagues to share ideas, apply theoretical and methodological approaches across settings, and learn lessons on a broader scale.
LSHTM is part of the Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) consortium programme, which will be taking a new approach to anti-corruption policy and practice in Bangladesh, Nigeria and Tanzania. Funded by UK aid, ACE is responding to the serious challenges facing people and economies affected by corruption by generating evidence that makes anti-corruption real, and using those findings to help policy-makers, business and civil society adopt new, feasible, high impact strategies to tackle corruption.
Delivering quality public healthcare is a global challenge. ACE is concerned with the barriers health workers often face to provide the care patients need, whilst also prioritising their own gains due to badly designed incentive structures in health systems.

Research is conducted in high-, middle- and low-income countries, in partnership with country level research institutions and international agencies. The map below shows countries in which we have health systems projects (current or recently completed). Global projects can be viewed separately here.
