Transforming Public Health: IPPH Strategic Plan, 2022-2026
Informing the plan

Expected Impacts

IPPH investments are guided by past learnings, present-day context, the knowledge needs of partners and communities, and priorities identified by the diverse population and public health community. To ensure research has impact, the actions in this strategic plan emphasize applied research solutions, adaptable funding models and intersectoral partnerships. Together, the commitments made in this plan are intended to respond to the evolving needs of Canada's public health systems, enable new opportunities for researchers to have impacts, and improve the health and health equity of Canadians and people around the world.

Over the coming year IPPH will develop a performance measurement framework. This framework will include qualitative and quantitative key performance indicators for each priority area as well as IPPH’s equity plan. These indicators will consider IPPH’s programs, policies, processes, grants, and how funded research is ultimately used to shape practices, programs and policies. Developed in consultation with IPPH’s Institute Advisory Board and CIHR’s Planning, Evaluation & Results team, the performance measurement framework will allow IPPH to demonstrate progress on the objectives set out in this plan and enable a culture of continuous learning and improvement.
