Since its inaugural meeting in 1970, the Society for the Social History of Medicine (SSHM) has pioneered inter-disciplinary approaches to the histories of health, welfare, medical science and practice. The disciplinary backgrounds of its membership vary widely, including history, public health, demography, anthropology, sociology, social administration and health economics.
SSHM's journal, Social History of Medicine (1988-), published by Oxford University Press, is one of the internationally leading journals in the field.
Though primarily based in the United Kingdom, the Society has always had a thriving international membership, and both Social History of Medicine and the book series have continued to expand their international coverage, reflecting the growing number of subscribers and readers outside the UK.
The SSHM is a charitable organisation registered in the UK. Charity Registration Number: 278414
