He is also a Health Research Board Research Leader with his RESTORE programme, focussed on health system resilience and reform.

North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO)
The North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO) is a collaborative partnership of interested researchers, health organizations, and governments promoting evidence-informed health system policy decision-making. Due to the high degree of health system decentralization in the United States and Canada, the NAO is committed to focusing attention on comparing health systems and policies at the provincial and state level in federations.
