Institute for Health and Human Development

Welcome to IHHD

The Institute for Health and Human Development (IHHD) was set up in March 2006 and brings together expertise across the university to carry out research on health and wellbeing and their social, economic and cultural  determinants.

The Institute and its people have a track record of research geared towards policy and intervention development in both developing and developed countries; a commitment to  community participation in research, and a focus on  the  potential of structural and cultural interventions to  influence consumption lifestyles and promote health and wellbeing.


IHHD aims to lead research agendas and inform policy and intervention locally, nationally and internationally. IHHD is developing rapidly, both as a new physical centre with core staffing and a new virtual centre cohering intellectual resources across the University and its schools. IHHD is working to secure new funding for research, scholarship, knowledge transfer and consultancy from a broad range of organisations.

Work is developed and conducted within coherent Areas of Research which build on UEL’s existing strengths and reputation and which exploit opportunities presented by current interest in social, economic and human development in East London and in global trajectories of social and economic development and wellbeing.

IHHD’s mission is to conduct high quality multi disciplinary theoretical and empirical research into the social, economic and cultural production of health and wellbeing; we use creative approaches to the design and evaluation of institutions, policies and interventions that engage and support people to make sustainable lifestyle and consumption choices which promote their health and wellbeing.
