Pursuing population health gains through better implementation.

The CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health (ISPH) was founded on the notion that substantial improvements in population health can be efficiently achieved through better implementation of existing strategies, policies, and interventions across multiple sectors.  With that in mind, we study how to translate and scale-up evidence-based interventions and policies within clinical and community settings in order to improve population health and reduce health disparities.

The Institute uses a range of digital communication channels to disseminate news and information among a global network of research colleagues and partners. This website serves as a platform for disseminating our scientific work and tools we have developed, as well as showcasing emergent topics in the field of implementation science.
