  1. To understand challenges in health care organization and delivery of services that are equitable using a systems lens.
  2. To build an actionable base of innovations and interventions to strengthen an integrated delivery of health care services that is person-centered at decentralized levels of health care.

We draw inspiration from the Primary Health Care concept – “Primary health care is essential health care based on practical, scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and technology made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community through their full participation and at a cost that the community and country can afford to maintain at every stage of their development in the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination” (Alma Ata declaration 1978) and conduct research for realisation of the same.

In this Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course, There is a need to understand implementation in the real-world context. There are many evidence-based interventions to improve health that have not been effectively delivered. The research agenda especially in the context of maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, etc. has been shifting and needs to shift from understanding the problem to actually intervening and testing solutions in health care systems. This Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course will improve the capacity of researchers to answer implementation research questions.
