In pursuance of the modified Deed of Foundation of the National Institute and Library for Health Information (MEDINFO), from 1 March 2004 the institute continues its activities as the National Institute for Strategic Health Research.


As a methodological research institute it carries out activities in the fields of health informatics, health economics, health system sciences, technology assessment and support policy in connection with the sector's formulation of health policy strategy and decision preparation.


Some of the institute's programmes:
