Population, Policy and Practice

We are a multi-disciplinary group of researchers with an international reputation for population-level and clinical research that influences public health policy and practice.

Our aim is to promote the health of children and young people and the adults they will become through conducting research:

  • across the life course
  • on common, chronic and complex conditions, in addition to rare disorders
  • on defining and measuring what matters for children, young people and their families
  • recognising the wider contexts of children's lives


Children's Policy Research Unit (CPRU)

CPRU was established by the Department of Health in 2011 to provide evidence for policy and practice that will improve the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. It is a consortium led from ICH in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB), the Anna Freud Centre and the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE).

CPRU  has five research themes, four of which are being led by researchers in this Programme (the healthy child, healthcare provision, adolescent health and long term conditions).

Director: Professor Terence Stephenson
