Moving evidence to policy for health, well-being and equity



The Institute for Health and Social Policy occupies a central role at McGill University as a multidisciplinary centre for research, training and knowledge mobilization on issues of health and social policy. The IHSP conducts and supports world-class research on how social conditions impact the health, well-being and resilience of people and communities, and leads programs designed to translate research findings into policies and programs on local, provincial, national and global scales. The Institute is committed to building collaborations with policymakers, communities and researchers to effectively move evidence to policy.
