Operations Research

The Swiss Centre for International Health, as a department, is nested in an academic institution with a strong research profile. While SCIH is primarily a service department, we base our services on evidence and create linkages to research, both through in-house and external collaborations. In addition, within our services, scientific work is conducted through integrating operational research to provide evidence for decision making. Priorities include health service research and interventions, as well as various topics such as governance of health systems and the effects of scaling-up priority interventions. We also contribute to facilitating the dialogue between the scientific community, policy makers, health service providers and users, and engage in dialogue to generate relevant questions for research.
