Cambridge Public Policy SRI

 

Political economy of public health refers to research aimed at understanding the economic, political, social and historical forces which shape contemporary public health issues and our responses to them. This event aims to explore research in this area from Cambridge and beyond and give you a chance to meet and network with colleagues from across public health.
