The topic of ‘Health Systems’ is rapidly growing as a multi-disciplinary area of research and teaching at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. As health systems are complex, innovative research approaches are needed to understand them, examining how individual interventions and policies work and how they interact with the other elements of the health system and beyond, giving attention to both intended and unintended consequences.

This website presents some of the health systems research being undertaken in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy as well as listing relevant teaching programmes, resources and events.
