The Centre for Philosophy, Justice and Health is a partnership between many UCL departments, including Philosophy, Political Science, Laws, the Medical School, and Epidemiology. Its main aim is to provide a UCL based focus for research into distributive justice and health, through conferences, workshops, papers, public engagement and teaching.

The Centre convenes a weekly seminar on Social Values and Health Priority Setting, and regularly organises conferences and events. Our next event is the UCL-KCL Bioethics Colloquium on 7 May. 

The Centre runs an MA programme in the Philosophy, Politics and Economics of Health, and a linked seminar, Research in Philosophy, Justice and Health.

To receive details of the Centre's future activities, and other related events, please register for the mailing list.
