The NCCHPP seeks to make work from the different disciplines of the social sciences available to public health actors. This bridging role between public health and the social sciences is achieved in a variety of ways.

Notably, the NCCHPP has a goal to identify the work of social science researchers from across Canada whose work is within or related to the health sector.

For this exploratory study, the NCCHPP collaborated with Nicole F. Bernier, a political scientist and researcher at the Département de médecine sociale et préventive de l’Université de Montréal (the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Montréal) to examine how health policy issues are integrated into course offerings and research agendas in Canadian political science departments.
