Group | Health Systems and Policies

The Health Systems and Policies research group develops and applies methods to evaluate and validate health system interventions in real-world health systems. We place special attention on measuring systems effectiveness of essential health interventions and assessing policies, recognising the interrelatedness of all health system building blocks – governance, financing, human resources, informatics, technologies and infrastructure, and service delivery. We also focus on strengthening good governance of health systems and translating evidence to policy. The research group combines expertise in health system analysis, policy analysis and evaluation, and health economics.

We participate in the Consortium for Health Policy and Systems Analysis for Africa. This is an EU FP7 project which is dedicated to support teaching at Schools of Public Health in Africa and beyond.
