Quantitative methods in public health (EHESP)

The research conducted by the department falls within several topics:

Health safety: occupational health and risks, safety of care, safety of health products, epidemic models for emerging diseases
Health promotion and prevention: maternal and child health, immunisation programmes
Health and the environment: the contribution of environmental exposures to social health inequalities
Healthcare service organisation and management: management of chronic diseases (neurological, vascular, kidney)

The department relies on quantitative methods to carry out these research activities. It has access to the necessary expertise to analyse medical-social, healthcare and administrative databases.
