Population Health Intervention Research against Cancer: Investing in a " Science of Solutions "

Abstract : Internationally, Population Health Intervention Research (PHIR) is increasingly regarded as a field of research that bridges the gap between public health research and practice and as one of the important instruments to move from description of health problems to the identification of effective solutions relevant to various contexts. Capitalizing on some of the experiences and outputs from previous conferences on the subject held in the United States and in Canada, an international conference entitled “Intervention Research against Cancer: bringing together researchers, policy makers and practitioners” was held in Paris, France, on November 17-18, 2014. This conference, convened over 200 researchers, decision- and policy-makers, community representatives and local organizations, with the goal to demonstrate and discuss how PHIR can enhance evidenced-base decisions and interventions across the full continuum of cancer control. This commentary presents the main conclusions of the conference, and recommendations for future research and actions.
