The Department’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of Arkansans by generating, disseminating, and applying the evidence needed for sound policy and managerial decision-making within the health system. We pursue this mission by:
- Conducting research to identify better ways of organizing, financing, and delivering health services and implementing health policies;
- Helping students acquire the knowledge and skills needed for effective policy and managerial decision-making on health issues; and
- Serving the health system in Arkansas and beyond by providing public officials and other decision-makers with objective, reliable information and assistance.
