UNWHP's main activities include:
- Providing a rich evidence-base about policy opportunities and constraints to effective public and private aid in the public health sector;
- Involving new people and perspective – both multidisciplinary and global – into health policy analysis to increase the robustness of the debate; and
- Supporting the development of innovative solutions to global health financing and other policy problems.
Meeting these challenges requires ongoing innovations in basic and epidemiological sciences, including measurement of population health, improved methods of translating knowledge into cost-effective interventions and ensuring an equitable, distribution of the benefits of innovation. Improved global health has global benefits, including advancing population-based science relevant to people in developed countries and enhancing scientific access to rapidly expanding economies worldwide.
