London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Our School's global impact would not be possible without the crucial support of our community of committed donors and friends.
The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is renowned for its world-leading research, postgraduate studies and continuing education in public and global health.
Our diverse student body is what makes our community so special. Each year, your support funds our LSHTM Fund Scholars, enabling exceptional students to study at our School. We receive thousands of applications every year, with funding only available to support a small number. Without support, many brilliant students like this year's LSHTM Fund Scholar, Judy Baariu (MSc Public Health for Development, 2023) would not have been able to study with us.
LSHTM has over 3,500 staff conducting research in more than 100 countries, with core hubs in London and at the MRC Units in The Gambia and Uganda. Our outstanding, diverse and committed staff make an impact where it is most needed - deploying research in real time in response to crises, developing innovative programmes for major health threats, or training the next generations of public and global health leaders and researchers.
We help shape health policy and translate research findings into tangible impact. We are uniquely placed to lead on transformative approaches to global health and have 120 years of experience tackling big challenges. We are focused on finding new solutions to complex problems and acting upon this knowledge.
We work in collaboration with friends, partners, and supporters to achieve large-scale, long-term impact. Researchers at LSHTM explore all aspects of health challenges, from fundamental laboratory science to policy appraisal and analysis, encompassing statistical, clinical, laboratory, epidemiological and social science research globally.
Our aim is to build strong and dynamic leadership, push the frontiers of knowledge and make an impact where it is most needed. Philanthropy helps us achieve our mission; to improve health and health equity worldwide; working in partnership to achieve excellence in public and global health research, education and translation of knowledge into policy and practice.
