Health Policy

Health Services and Systems Research (HSSR) Singapore Health PolicyHealth Policy aims to analyze issues of broad importance for which clinical or public health policy is salient, and to make these analyses useful to relevant decision makers.  Given the nature of our work, virtually all projects are directly or indirectly relevant to policy, ranging from decisions about the development of specific community programs, to supporting the availability of particular drugs and devices.  Though most policy analysis occurs within government entities or healthcare organizations, our work takes an academic focus, considering studies likely to produce generalizable knowledge and that provide opportunities to develop and test new methods for engaging with stakeholders in policy analysis.  To this end, we have developed collaborative relationships with several policy-making entities in Singapore, including the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Ministry of Community Development, Youth & Sports (MCYS), the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), and the Health Promotion Board (HPB).
