To ensure our research is useful to policy, academics, and policy actors we have been working collaboratively with our partners from the very start of this project.

This has included long term embedded SIPHER researchers employed by each of our policy partner organisations - a novel approach in public health research.

SIPHER is grateful to all those involved. 

Policy Partners

SIPHER’s four policy partners, representing local, regional and national governments, are actively contributing to the development of innovative approaches to address health and wellbeing policy issues.

SIPHER researchers are embedded into the policy processes of our partner organisations and play a crucial role in shaping and addressing emerging evidence needs for policy analysis.

Our new strategies and frameworks are explicitly focused on specific geographical areas and adopt a multi-sectoral approach.
