Evaluation of Taiwan’s National Health Insurance

The objectives of this project are to evaluate performance of Taiwan’s National Health Insurance System to examine how health insurance affects the level and distribution of health status, financial risk protection, and public satisfaction. This project is a collaboration between the Bureau of National Health Insurance (BNHI) and National Health Research Institution of Taiwan (NHRI). In addition to research, the project also aims to build up research capacity in Health System Studies in Taiwan. This project involves adjunct researchers who currently hold faculty positions in leading University’s in Taiwan and a core group of BNHI and NHRI staff.
