The Institute supports world-class research on how social conditions impact population health and welfare.  In particular it aims to translate research findings in the area of social inequalities and health outcome into concrete provincial, national and international policies. Through the generosity of donors, the Institute also administers two programs: the McBurney Latin America Program, which focuses on training in Latin America; and the Healthier Societies Initiative, which examines OECD best practices in health policy and services.  

The Institute gratefully acknowledges funding by the Dean of Medicine and the Dean of Arts, as well as by the Vice-Principal (Research) and the University Provost. We invite you to read more about the Institute’s activities and opportunities for student internships both at McGill and abroad.
