Working together to tackle inequalities
and improve the health of the public

About Us

The conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age are key drivers of health and health inequalities. Preventing ill health related to these “social determinants of health” requires well-coordinated policies across many sectors, such as the economy, welfare, housing, education and employment.

 

SIPHER will deliver novel evidence on the costs and benefits of the complex, interlinked and long-term consequences of policy decisions. This will help our partners to identify opportunities for the strategic alignment of policies across relevant sectors and give the confidence to change the way major investment decisions are made.

We are always keen to develop new links with interested research centres, local and national governments, as well as health- and social justice-focused charities and interest groups. We want to ensure our new methods and findings are helpful to everyone who may use them. Please get in touch!
