All research undertaken at IHSC is relevant to current policy challenges. The priority setting exercise ensures that research topics are chosen based on consultations with policymakers and policy practitioners from state and central governments, and other health systems decision makers.

We strive to inform policy in the direction of the evidence we generate. For this, we ensure continuous engagement with policymakers during the course of the study. We achieve this through regular meetings and consultations with the officials involved.

Policy engagement is not restricted to the government alone. We involve decision makers and stakeholders from across the wider health systems community. These include regulators, development sector agencies, provider associations, industry associations etc.


To showcase our work and critical findings, we organize a high-level policy conference in partnership with the government every year. The conference has representation from across the diverse health systems community. The conference presents an opportunity to members to present their work to a wide audience.
