IHHD opened its doors in 2006. Our mission today is the same as it was then - to carry out high-quality theoretical and applied research into public health.
We also aim to use new and creative approaches to provide world-class consultancy and knowledge transfer. Our clients and partners include governments, local authorities, businesses and charities. We always try to involve the communities or patients we’re targeting in our research. We do our best to make them our partners in both design and delivery.
We’re committed to a vibrant academic community built on research, enterprise and innovation. Our projects and research make a real impact in the outside world – both in the UK and overseas. Our funding comes from a broad range of organisations. These include UK government departments, UK research councils, NHS trusts and the European Commission.
