Welcome to Pathways to Universal Healthcare

Mapping the Pathways to Universal Healthcare is a three-year research programme which aims to provide an excellent evidence base that will inform the strategic direction and implementation of universal healthcare in Ireland. The project is running until March 2018.

Dr Steve Thomas, the Director of the Centre for Health Policy and Management in Trinity College Dublin, is the principal investigator (PI) of the project which is funded by the Irish Health Research Board. Dr Sara Burke is the project co-ordinator, working alongside Dr Thomas, Dr Sarah Barry, Dr Bridget Johnston, Maebh Ní Fhallúin and Rikke Siersbaek.

The project is a collaboration between the Centre for Health Policy and Management, Trinity College, and staff from the Health Systems Strengthening Office of WHO Europe and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.
