Professor Angela Harden

Director and Professor of Community and Family Health, Institute for Health and Human Development (IHHD)

    Angela Harden is a social scientist with over 20 years experience in applied health research to promote population health and well-being and reduce health inequalities.  She is currently Director of the Institute for Health and Human Development at the University of East London which researches community and system wide approaches to improve health including the award winning ‘Well Communities’ programme and research which is shaping the national roll-out of social prescribing in the NHS. She joined UEL in 2008 as Professor of Community and Family Health, a post jointly funded by Barts Health NHS Trust. She leads several research programmes developing and testing community-centred interventions to improve health outcomes for women, children and young people, including the REACH Pregnancy programme which is testing new models of antenatal care in socially disadvantaged and ethnically diverse urban contexts, a programme of research investigating how to prevent low birth weight and its adverse consequences, and the development and evaluation of a young clinical commissioner role for the co-design of services for young people. Her research is interdisciplinary and inter-professional and she works with a wide range of research methods from participatory action research through to randomised controlled trials. Angela is also recognised as a world leading expert in evidence synthesis. Prior to joining UEL, she was an associate director of the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre at UCL Institute of Education.  Here she developed ground-breaking methods for including qualitative research alongside trials in systematic reviews. Her work has led to direct impact on policy, practice and the public through, for example, underpinning NICE Guidance on community engagement to reduce health inequalities and integration of findings from the commissioners model into a tool kit published by NHS England (‘How to develop youth forums in the NHS’).  She has published extensively and has secured funding from national and international bodies such as NIHR, ESRC, AHRC and EUFP7 as well as local health trusts and charities. She is a co-convener of the Cochrane Collaboration’s Qualitative and Implementation Methods Group and is a key investigator and theme lead (child and adolescent health) within the North Thames CLAHRC. From 2012 to 2018 she was a member of the NIHR Health Technology Assessment Commissioning Board.
