Health is the most precious asset for any individual, family, business, community or state.
Therefore health is an important issue both: for every individual and for people altogether.
Thus health is everybody’s business.
Health department of ICARE does research and analysis of the way people organize their activities
in relation to health. Since resources are and always will be limited and less than the needs,
only proper prioritizing of competing demands can lead to efficiency, or maximizing the outcome.
Our business is helping you to maximize the outcomes with your limited resources. Ask us how.

ICARE founder Jordan Panayotov has developed a
model for designing, planning and evaluation of
public health policies, programs and interventions.
The model analyses the correlation between the
average health status and health inequalities in
dynamics, explaining the generative mechanisms.
Based on critical realism (i.e. if A then always B),
the model provides universal explanations and
predictions which are necessary for successful
implementation of Health in All Policies (HiAP).
The model is deposited in U.S. Copyright Register
and has been presented successfully on several
Independent Centre for Analysis & Research of Economies
|FOR SUSTAINABLE AND PROSPEROUS SOCIETY
The model provides a useful tool for decision-makers, researchers and local practitioners to:
1) Explain empirical findings, i.e. for rapid research review;
2) Make predictions about the impacts on population health in terms of changes in average helth
status and health inequalities, i.e. for Health Impact Assessment (HIA) as tool for successful
implementation of Health in All Policies (HiAP);
3) Make proper choices of policies, programs and interventions in line with the goal of public health,
i.e. for priority setting and justification of addressing the social determinants of health (SDH).
