Current Projects

From 2013 to 2016 researchers from the Health System Performance Research Network (HSPRN) are participating in a wide variety of projects designed to offer insights into a range of health system performance issues. 

The first set of research projects (1 to 4) focuses on utilization, cost and best practice interventions for specific population groups.  The other research projects (see 5 to 8 below) involve health policy topics that cut across all populations.
