  3. 3. Vision and Mission <ul><li>Vision: </li></ul><ul><li>IHME aspires to make available to the world high quality information on population health and its determinants, and on the performance of health systems. We seek to achieve this directly, by catalyzing the work of others, and by training researchers as well as policy makers. </li></ul><ul><li>Mission: </li></ul><ul><li>Our goal is to improve the health of the world’s populations by providing the best information on population health. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Every Decision-Maker Needs the Answer to Three Questions <ul><li>What are people’s health problems? </li></ul><ul><li>How well is a society doing in addressing these health problems? </li></ul><ul><li>What can be done in the future to maximize health improvement? </li></ul>
  5. 5. What to expect <ul><li>Vision and Mission </li></ul><ul><li>Principles </li></ul><ul><li>Four Program Areas </li></ul><ul><li>Research Teams </li></ul><ul><li>Governance, Scale, Funding </li></ul>
  6. 6. Principles for how we work <ul><li>Excellence: We will apply the best scientific methods to the challenges of health measurement and evaluation. </li></ul><ul><li>Relevance: We will measure what is important for population health, not just what is easy to measure. </li></ul><ul><li>Independence: We will ensure the independence of the Institute and its staff from political influence, policy advocacy, and other conflicting influences. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Principles for our products <ul><li>Comparability: We will make measurements comparable across time and populations. </li></ul><ul><li>Comprehensibility: We will make measurements comprehensible by broad audiences including the public, policymakers, health professionals, and researchers. </li></ul><ul><li>Coherence: We will base our measurements on systematic assessments of available data and objectively portray the uncertainty in measurements. </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency: We will seek to use our resources in areas where the Institute can make the greatest contribution. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Principles for working effectively with the global community <ul><li>Transparency: We will foster transparency and accountability by providing an explicit data audit trail which provides enough detail for results to be replicated by others. </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboration: We will work with other institutions to make the greatest contribution to the field of health metrics and evaluation. </li></ul><ul><li>Consultation: We will consult with the global health community to better understand what is important to measure and evaluate and we will consult with those who are affected by an analysis. We recognize that consultation does not necessarily lead to consensus. </li></ul><ul><li>Dialogue: We will foster an open and constructive debate and dialogue about all aspects of health metrics and evaluation including our own methods and results. </li></ul>
