Population Health Improvement Research Network
The Population Health Improvement Research Network (PHIRN) is a province-wide network linking population health researchers and community partners in order to improve the health of Ontarians and the sustainability of the health care system. PHIRN is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to support high-quality applied population health research that addresses complex issues that affect health and health equity using a collaborative approach and to promote the production and dissemination of new knowledge, best practices and policies.
- PHIRN publishes the É/Exchange Working Paper series. One of the papers, A Scoping Review of the Population Health Equity and Intervention Literature in Ontario, describes the primary areas of population health research undertaken in the province, identifies researchers and research gaps.
