Health policy research seeks to understand how societies organize themselves to provide healthcare within their system and provide data and observations about how changes could contribute to better outcomes. It is an inter-disciplinary research using economics, sociology, anthropology, political science, public health and epidemiology to draw a comprehensive picture of how health systems work and adapt to health policies, and how health policies can shape - and be shaped by - health systems and the broader determinants of health.
