Excellence in Health Research

This BA Newton Advanced Fellowship award-funded study focuses around primary care in Brazil. The research will yield new evidence on PMAQ, the Brazilian National Programme for Access and Quality Improvement in Primary Care.

Academics from Brazilian universities, governmental and other organisations are collaborating with the project. The researchers will conduct a rapid review, interview policymakers, implementers and front-line staff in Goiás and Pernambuco, and examine related documentation. Data analysis will take into account relevant themes from Public Policy, the politics of performance and Health System literature. The UK/Brazil partnership will involve research collaboration, reciprocal visits and knowledge transfer.

Professor Peckham will give two special open lectures at UFG in partnership with Dr Fabiana da Cunha Saddi, post-doc researcher at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Federal University of Goias in Brazil. They will teach on a policy analysis module for the University’s Political Science Masters Course. Fabiana will spend time in England at CHSS over the next two years.
