The Public Health Research Consortium (PHRC) brings together senior researchers from 11 UK institutions in an integrated programme of research. It aims to strengthen the evidence base for interventions to improve health, with a strong emphasis on tackling socioeconomic inequalities in health.

The PHRC is built around a set of research projects led by senior researchers with expertise in public health, social epidemiology, sociology, survey and evaluation research, social marketing and health economics.

The consortium links teams across eight universities, a survey research agency, a children's charity and a public health observatory, and is directed by Mark Petticrew from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Professor Catherine Law and Professor Chris Power are both collaborators on the PHRC.
