Breaking the cycle of poor health and poverty.
Bridging the gap in health inequalities.
Time to shift the power
Our vision for the future is rooted in equitable partnerships around the world, tackling the major health challenges facing humanity. The 125th Anniversary Campaign aims to shift the power away from top-down Western interventions, to supporting the development of research that is not just for the benefit of low resource countries, but led by them.
This will take bold investment in leadership roles in key global hubs, fellowships and scholarships, and flagship developments; a Human Challenge Facility and Institute in Resilient Health Systems.
We invite you to join us in shaping the next 125 years for the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

Our campaign priorities
Our £25m fundraising campaign will support 125 million investments over 10 years. To achieve global health security, we need to strengthen health systems and bridge health inequalities. A highly trained health workforce is critical to building resilience and address major challenges such as emerging infections, pandemics, and resistance, through global efforts.
Our 125 Anniversary Campaign aims to do this by investing in brilliant people and partnerships to bridge the gap in health and scientific capacity around the world.
In 2020 the world changed, as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across every continent.
The implications for health systems, the economy, and our society were profound.
The scale of global inequalities was exposed and, in some countries, the health systems were decimated by the pandemic.
The impact of poor health has overwhelming consequences on families, communities, and entire populations. Without a healthy population, a country’s development will suffer serious social and economic setbacks.
Perhaps for the first time, we were reminded how vulnerable we all are.

Why is your support so important?
We invite you to join us in bridging health inequalities and securing healthy futures for all.
Support from donors enables us to push the boundaries of traditional research and statutory funding. They allow the freedom to develop solutions which will catalyse new knowledge and research funding, ultimately decreasing reliance on aid.
Donations enable us to invest in new, untested, and perhaps unconventional ideas and the most promising students and scientists. These are the people who will lead the world in finding solutions to humanity biggest health challenges.
Donations allow the flexibility to work with new partners and support them in developing their own research infrastructure and competitiveness. This creates collaborations which are responsive to regional challenges, but which have the potential to benefit human health worldwide.
Ways to give.
125 years of impact
Since 1898, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine has worked to break the cycle of poor health and poverty across the world.
Our 125 Anniversary in 2023 is an opportunity to celebrate a unique institution. It is also an opportunity for us to consider the global health challenges of the next 125 years.
Our vision, created with partners and colleagues around the world, aims to develop the scientific and healthcare workforce who will lead the solutions. By focussing our efforts on the poorest communities, we will support the development of more resilient health, new knowledge and capacity to create healthier and safer futures for all.
