The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a postgraduate and research institution specialising in public and global health. Founded in 1899, it has over 1,000 Master’s and research students enrolled in London and another 3,000 taking courses via distance learning.

The School’s global outreach is huge, with centres around the world focusing on areas such as malaria, tuberculosis, tropical epidemiology, non-communicable diseases, global mental health, mathematical modelling, evaluation of public health interventions, and maternal, reproductive, adolescent and child health. The director, Professor Peter Piot, co-discovered the Ebola virus and was founding director of UNAIDS and Under Secretary-General of the United Nations.
