The LSE Global Health Initiative is a new, cross-departmental research platform set up to increase the coherence and visibility of Global Health research activity across the LSE and will launch with an official event on the 24th October 2017.

The event will be chaired by Professor Julia Black, Pro Director for Research at LSE, and will start with a panel of LSE experts including Professor Catherine Campbell from the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science, Professor Elias Mossialos and Professor Tim Allen (TBC), showcasing the range of global health activity taking place at LSE. This will be followed by a keynote speech by Geeta Rao Gupta Executive Director of the 3D Program for Girls and Women and Senior Fellow at the United Nations Foundation. She also serves as co-Chair of the Gender-Based Violence Task Force of the World Bank and member of the Independent Oversight and Advisory Committee for the WHO health emergencies. The launch event will conclude with a poster exhibition and drinks.

In May 2017, PBS’s Professor Cathy Campbell presented a wealth of work dedicated to issues in Global Health at the internal launch of the initiative, hosted at LSE. The discussion included staff and students and was lively and wide-ranging. Postgraduate students and faculty evaluated LSE’s unique contribution to the field and debated the ways this new initiative can benefit LSE staff and students, including a call for more dynamic collaboration opportunities and cross-departmental support mechanisms.  The seminar was followed by an exhibition of nearly forty posters and abstracts (many of which will also be shown at the official launch) showcasing Global Health work submitted by staff and students from a range of LSE Departments. You can view Cathy’s original presentation below. You can see more about the work that PBS are doing and all the topics of research to do with the area of global health on the PBS website.

It’s a great pleasure for our department to be a part of this initiative and we look forward to the insights that will be produced.
