Better health for all

CMI’s health research focuses on how to improve health and healthcare for vulnerable groups. We explore how the quality of health care can be improved.

Our particular focus is on the interaction  between patients and health care providers. We evaluate whether financial incentives or other interventions can  be used to improve health outcomes.

We explore the underlying reasons for early marriage and pregnancy. We evaluate the impact of strategies to educate and empower adolescents and their communities.

We explore how health rights can be realized, with
a particular focus on sexual and reproductive rights.

Our research and evaluation expertise:

  • Health worker performance
  • Performance-based financing
  • Early marriage and pregnancy
  • Health rights/sexual and reproductive rights

CMI is partner in a Centre of Excellence, the Centre for Intervention Science in Maternal and Child Health (CISMAC). This international consortium involves institutions in seven countries and is anchored at the Centre for International Health at the University of Bergen.
