Population health research recognizes that many factors influence disease development, progression, treatment and inequities across the life course. However, health outcomes only improve when delivery systems implement effective, sustainable clinical and social interventions that are accessible by all who need them. The Population Health Program builds the capability of scientists, health care and public health systems to integrate research and clinical care to solve population health problems.

The Population Health program equips health agencies with the skills that they need to introduce and sustain the practice and application of critical translational science methods. The program focuses on preparing researchers and health agencies to: apply dissemination, implementation and improvement (DII) research methods to the development, scale-up and spread of multi-component, multi-level population health interventions; apply innovative modeling techniques and use large datasets for population health research and improvement; and apply DII sciences to address real-world population health problems.
