what we do

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

SIPHER is delivering new, much-needed evidence on the complex, interlinked, and long-term consequences of such policy decisions. With a focus on the system-wide impact on health of key policy areas our approach empowers policy makers to explore novel solutions and make informed decisions.
