The Centre for History in Public Health was established in 2003, having originally developed from the AIDS Social History Programme in the late 1980s. Its location within a multi-disciplinary public health institution is unique, and keeps it firmly in the forefront of historical research into public health, and health services.
The CHiPH mission :
To promote and undertake high quality research in order to contribute to the development of the historical discipline and to historical understanding in the field of public health policy.
The Centre has been awarded a new five year infrastructure award
from the Wellcome Trust starting in Autumn 2009 and running until 2014.
This supports the Centre's core interests in public health, health services
and health consumerism. It provides administrative support, funding
for seminars, conferences, walks, oral history interviewing and policy
The Centre receives additional funding through external research grants.
The Director of ChiPH is Professor Virginia Berridge.
