Dr. K.S Shinu
Executive Director, SHSRCK
The State Health Systems Resource Centre, Kerala (SHSRCK) is the technical support institution under the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Kerala. The main objective of SHSRCK is to undertake research, evaluation and extend technical support to strengthen various components of state health system. Over the years SHSRCK, has worked towards achieving this by supporting various research studies and executing several consultative and capacity building workshops. Currently the institution is nodal agency for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) pilot projects in three districts which is first and presently only UHC pilot in the country. The website of SHSRCK is designed to serve the functions of an online Knowledge Exchange Platform which has research reports, evaluation studies, working papers, news and other information about Kerala health system.
I whole heartedly wish that the organisation progress to be a knowledge hub supporting the health systems research in the coming years.
