Welcome to the National Institute for Health Research’s School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR) at ScHARR, University of Sheffield; SPHR@Sheffield.

The University of Sheffield is one of eight academic centres of excellence in applied public health research comprising the NIHR SPHR. This partnership was established in April 2012 and aims to build the evidence base for effective public health practice.

Our research increases understanding of what works to improve population health and reduce health inequalities.

We work in close collaboration with policymakers, practitioners and the public to better understand and meet the evidence needs for public health decision-making.
