The Grandmothers and Public Health Network is a group of researchers and public health practitioners interested in bringing grandmothers into public health research and interventions. It originated in a British Society for Population Studies-funded one day workshop organised by Rebecca Sear and Anushé Hassan at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
