The EIHR initiative focuses on three priority areas:
- financing and funding models;
- health system sustainability; and
- governance and accountability.
Innovation in these areas will require contributions from a wide range of disciplines and methodological approaches. Health services and health policy research would greatly benefit from contributions from economics, political science, sociology, philosophy, law, and other relevant fields, and from the involvement of policy makers, decision makers and healthcare providers.
The EIHR initiative's second set of funding opportunities including, Partnerships for Health System Improvement grants, Policy Analysis grants, Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovations grants, and Fellowship and Post-doctoral Research Awards, will support innovative research that will advance the current state of knowledge and contribute to evidence-informed decision-making within EIHR's three priority areas.
Note: The Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovation grants will be launched in late July.

Partnerships for Health Systems Improvement
Partnerships for Health System Improvement (PHSI) aims to strengthen Canada's healthcare system through collaborative, applied and policy-relevant research. PHSI is Canada's premier health services and policy research competition — and with its strong emphasis on partnerships and knowledge translation it is also a major resource for managers and policy makers who want relevant research to inform their decision-making. PHSI funds teams of decision makers and researchers to conduct applied health services and policy research. Because they participate throughout the research process the research results are more likely to be relevant to and used by decision makers. Consistent with the program's emphasis on partnerships, grants are funded through a combination of CIHR and partner funding.
The maximum amount awarded by CIHR for a single grant is $400,000 for up to three years (partnership contributions are in addition to the CIHR amount). (Please note that deadlines to submit requests to competition partners are in advance of the CIHR application deadline)
