Centre for 21st Century Public Health

Our research explores ground-breaking approaches to public health and sustainability to enable us to meet the unique challenges of the 21st century.

What is the Centre for 21st Century Public Health

Population health improvement requires action on commercial, political, economic and social determinants of health, engaging with the complexity of both the challenges and the responses to them.

Our Centre builds on the ground-breaking work of the Tobacco Control Research Group (TCRG) on the harmful products and practices of major corporations; and Bath’s novel approaches to research, policy and practice within complex systems to drive effective action on 21st century public health challenges
