Health Policy and Systems Research

AIHO conducts and implements research studies, projects and programs for different public health institutions.


We regularly respond to calls for proposals, offering our wide perspective, experience, and expertise in doing public health research.

With our strong background in research project implementation, we also serve as a platform for public health researchers to propose and implement their own research projects funded by grants, especially from Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD).

We take pride in facilitating strategic planning initiatives and consultation meetings with different organizations. Our project management capacity, and wide network in the public health community, makes us the preferred partner in implementing public health events and research dissemination activities.
