Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

SCPHRP was established in 2008 to encourage and facilitate collaborations between all sectors of the public health community in Scotland. Our core mandate is:

  • To identify key areas of opportunity for developing novel public health interventions that equitably address major health problems in Scotland, and move those forward.
  • To foster collaboration between government, researchers and the public health community to develop a national programme of intervention development, large-scale implementation and robust evaluation.
  • Build capacity within the public health community for collaborative research of the highest quality, with maximum impact on policies, programs and practice

SCPHRP’s vision is to develop Scotland as a leader in public-health intervention research for equitable health improvement through catalysing strong researcher/research-user collaborations that ensure timely, robust, policy relevant research that is created with – and used by – key decision-makers. We are also wanting to link in with international researchers and policy makers who share the same vision in their own geographical areas.
