The Social Dimensions of Health Institute (SDHI) is an organisation which encompasses the variety of inter-disciplinary health-related research being conducted in both the University of Dundee and the University of St Andrews. The Institute is a platform for a broad interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange network. It brings together researchers with complementary expertise and skill profiles to enhance efforts to understand and explain the social dimensions of health and healthcare. In addition to understanding the context, causes and consequences associated with the social dimensions of health, SDHI is concerned with understanding the organisation, coordination and effectiveness of health care services.

The institute supports collaborations between academics with backgrounds in diverse social and health sciences, as well as arts, computing and humanities. It also encourages joint working with professionals in health and public services, third sector organisations and businesses. It has positioned itself as a broker for innovative, interdisciplinary, applied research to inform the understanding of health and well-being and the delivery of health care in Scotland and internationally.
