Impact through partnership

Some health challenges seem impossible to overcome including rising obesity, infant and adult mortality, and a lack of fair access to mental health support.

At Essex, we believe good health and wellbeing for all is achievable by better addressing the multiple root causes of ill-health and by taking a collaborative, interdisciplinary and global approach.

Understanding societies and the global inequalities that shape them, coupled with the application of scientific, medical, and practice-based advances are at the heart of our commitment to good public health and wellbeing for all.

Our Institute of Public Health and Wellbeing is a place where researchers are committed to pushing boundaries, reaching across disciplines and providing authoritative research, policy recommendations and insights that improve lives.
