The Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU) is a research unit that focuses on ways to take action to reduce health inequity by addressing the social determinants of health. SPHERU is based jointly at the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan.  Its work investigates the social factors that contribute to the health of groups within populations.  It evaluates the effectiveness of policies and programs designed to make social and economic conditions healthier and more equitable for Canadians.  The organization’s work informs potential policies and programs to improve health equity in Canada and beyond.

SPHERU’s research falls within one of five themes: northern and aboriginal health, healthy children, rural health, the history of health inequities, and intervention research. Visitors to the SPHERU website are able to:
