Quality health care for all
Too many people die because they lack access to basic health services. Quality healthcare is not only a question about technical skills and financial resources. It is also about mobilising a motivated health workforce that make the best of their skills and resources.
CMIs health research focuses on understanding and influencing the behaviour of health professionals and patients to improve health outcomes and patient well-being. We also explore how factors outside the health sector can improve health outcomes.
Our current research focuses on:
- The effect of using incentives (performance-based financing) to improve health services.
- How to reduce early marriage and pregnancy.
- How adolescent health can be improved through more and better education.
- How to strengthen the implementation of sexual and reproductive health rights.
- How to improve malaria treatment for children.
