Policy and advocacy

Through campaigns and partnerships, Wellcome brings together people and resources from across society to get the most out of research. It’s how we make sure great ideas improve health, as quickly as possible, for everyone.

What we do 

We focus on the world's biggest health challenges and supporting the best possible environment for researchers to thrive.

Our work with researchers and policy makers – as well as commercial, charitable and non-governmental organisations around the world – informs decisions about science and health, and provides strong evidence for coordinated global action.

How we influence and inform policy

We work with a wide range of partners, including governments, research funders, learned societies, charities and commercial organisations, in the UK, Europe and globally.
