Global Health & Wellbeing Impact Fund


Since our inception, LSE’s teaching and research has been instrumental in creating health and welfare systems across the globe. We continue to advise and train leaders to strengthen global healthcare systems and the social, economic and political contexts in which they operate.

Shaping the world?

Over half of LSE's departments and institutes are involved in research and shaping policy related to global health, covering a dynamic range of disciplines, topics and regions. Our Global Health Initiative provides a hub to bring together these diverse activities on one platform, enabling greater collaboration across expert faculty and researchers while providing a single point of entry for the world to view our global health work and engage with our experts.

Our work includes collaborative partnerships, such as the African Health Observatory, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which helps countries learn from each other to foster better policies and action for improved health and wellbeing.

Never before was such support in demand.
