Welcome to this historical timeline of Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science. The Department is proud of its role in the formation of present-day health studies and the major contributions our research has made to the development of policies on global health, health equalities, older adults, care and welfare.
The history of health studies may be viewed as one hitherto dominated by the leadership of white men, but the Department’s present is very different and its future is sure to be even more so. Diversity and global perspectives award richness to our research and discussions.
This timeline tells our story. We will continue to update it with new milestones to recognise the achievements of our team.
