About the speaker

David McCoy is Professor of Global Public Health at the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health at Queen Mary University London (QMUL).

A medical doctor by training, he spent six years as a clinician in the UK and South Africa, before entering a career in public health. He spent a further seven years in South Africa with the University of Cape Town and the Health Systems Trust, an NGO established to support the post-apartheid transformation of South Africa’s healthcare system.

Since returning to the UK, he has worked variously in the NGO sector, academia and the National Health Service (including a period as a director of public health in London).

He has a doctorate from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and is a trustee of the Centre for Health in the Public Interest.
