[edit] Brief list of ADAPT topics

The basic research tasks are:

  1. Reviewing policies and their implementation in each country.
  2. Investigating the sources of variation in policies and practices.
  3. Identifying and strengthening ‘levers for change’.

  • Task 1 comprises mainly the 'Big Picture' project, which included development and implementation of the MIPEX Health Strand. The empirical results are available on the MIPEX website.
