Healthy lives across the world
Improving health outcomes in disadvantaged populations globally, through partnership in research and education
Our values will guide how we work – they are the essence of our community.
They have been developed in collaboration and consultation with our staff and will underpin the delivery of our Strategy.
Our community is a place where everyone is trusted, respected, appreciated and empowered.
We embrace diversity and welcome different views - we encourage honest, courageous conversations and always treat each other with kindness and dignity.
We act with integrity, fairness, and transparency and hold ourselves, and our partners, to the highest ethical standards.
We deliver on our commitments and foster a culture of continuous improvement and learning.
We work with those who share our values and ambitions and take pride in our collective achievements.
We support each other and will use our influence to develop and sustain equitable partnerships – together we will deliver better outcomes.
We are ambitious and strive to make a positive difference in everything that we do, working with staff, students, alumni and partners who are at the cutting edge of their fields of expertise.
We will approach our work with curiosity and learning and focus our efforts and resources where they will have greatest impact.
Our strategic objectives
- To undertake world-class translational research to improve health outcomes for disadvantaged populations across the world
- To deliver a flexible, accessible and innovative educational portfolio which will transform global health practice and leadership
- To expand and develop local and international equitable partnerships that underpin our impact
- To invest in our internal capabilities and resources to ensure organisational sustainability and resilience
Our Strategy is built around four core themes; Research, Education, Partnerships and Investing in our future.
These will shape our plans and activities over the coming years.
We will focus on enhancing our knowledge and understanding of cross-cutting global issues that pose a threat to human health and development, and on responding to the existing and emerging global health challenges faced by disadvantaged people in society.
We will develop and nurture the global health leaders of the future; graduates who understand the sensitivities of working and undertaking research in resource-constrained environments. LSTM graduates will be known as innovators; curious and outstanding professionals, highly sought after for their impact in health and health-related sectors.
We will nurture, develop and expand our equitable partnerships, working with those who share our vision for sustainable development and health equity. We will actively seek out equity within our partnerships, collaborating with those who can help realise our ambitions and amplify the potential of our research for the communities who most need it.
Investing in our future
We will create an environment and culture in which all LSTM staff feel valued and their achievements are recognised. We will continue to evolve and develop our organisational resources and capabilities and focus our strategic investment to achieve our mission and guarantee the future sustainability of LSTM.
