Principal Investigator, Public health financing and structural transformation: evaluating the impacts of past changes and understanding policymakers’ preferences for the future (Canadain Institues of Health Research Catalyst Grant)
This project is aimed to advance knowledge on the positive, negative and unintended effects of transformations to the public health structure and the implications on resource allocation. The goal of the research is to provide quantitative and qualitative data about the impact of past changes and policymakers’ preferences, but also to provide a method for monitoring changes to public health at the provincial, territorial and local level in the future.
Co-Investigator, Establishing a platform to monitor the performance of public health systems across Canada
(Canadain Institues of Health Research Grant)
Strong public health systems are essential to improving population health and ensuring sustainable health systems. While there is robust evidence of effectiveness of public health interventions, there is little known about how performance of public health systems varies across the country. Our proposed project aims to fill this knowledge gap by examining and comparing changes to public health financing, governance and organization on health outcomes using case studies in Canada and by defining structure, process and outcome indicators to establish a platform for ongoing monitoring and evaluation research.
Principal Investigator, Improving Public Health Finance Capacity and Spending Data Monitoring and Reporting to Inform the COVID Recovery Period: An International, Sequential Mixed-Methods Investigation (Canadain Institues of Health Research Grant)
The COVID-19 pandemic has made clearer than ever the need for strong, resilient public health (PH) systems that are sufficiently well funded. PH scholars, practitioners, and decision-makers from across the globe are now calling for a rebuilding of and reinvestment in PH systems for the COVID recovery period. However, there are substantial discrepancies between levels of governments or health reporting agencies as to how much is spent on PH. Without precise estimates of the past and current PH investments, rebuilding strong PH systems will prove difficult. We propose a project dedicated to improving the PH financing/spending monitoring and reporting in Canada, with international implications and organized around three interrelated objectives.
