About MARCH Centre

The MARCH Centre strengthens and promotes innovation, evaluation and evidence-based policy making by fostering communication and collaboration inside and outside the School and between researchers and policy makers, across a range of settings in over 100 countries and multiple disciplines including:

Description: observational epidemiology, high-quality national and global estimates and social science theory and analyses are the foundation for linking data to action.

Discovery: understanding infections, genetic and epigenetic risks, and delineating risks for adverse outcomes especially during the two crucial windows of pregnancy and the first two years after birth, and adolescence.

Development: innovations in diagnostics, devices and strategies, for example to improve quality of care.

Delivery: a major strength is in intervention and health systems research, with economic and policy analysis.

Currently we have over 80 multidisciplinary research studies, coordinated by world leading scientists and covering themes along the continuum of care.

The MARCH Centre is a hub for sharing and disseminating research findings. We regularly organise informal lunchtime talks and high profile evening seminars, workshops and symposia as well as many other Centre and theme activities. Most of our events are open to all and free of charge.
