India’s health care is predominantly financed by households through out-of-pocket payments at the point of care. Recognising this, successive governments have introduced various measures including health insurance schemes to protect the poor from high hospitalisation costs. One such scheme introduced in 2008, was the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY). Meant for the poorest of the poor, the government subsidised the premiums so that patients from this population are able to get free hospitalisation care at select hospitals in their neighbourhood. Despite a 100% subsidy of premiums and the promise of free health care even in private hospitals, in 2011-2012 the enrolment rate in RSBY was 51.4%. The aim of our study was to identify the reasons for the poor enrolment.

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.
