Getting Research into Policy in Public Health (GRIP-Health)

NOTE: This project will end on the 31st December 2016, after which this website will no longer be regularly updated.

GRIP-Health is a five year research project hosted at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and supported by the European Research Council.

The aim of this study is to improve the practice of evidence-informed health policymaking through the application of political, institutional, and sociological analysis.

GRIP-Health investigates two key factors which influence evidence use in health policy:

  • The politicisation of health policy issues; and,
  • The institutional structures through which evidence is incorporated into the policymaking process.
