For 20 years, the Saskatchewan Population Health Evaluation and Research Unit (SPHERU) has been a leader in population health research—the study of social and structural factors that affect the wellbeing of groups within our province. Visit our SPHERU 20 website for more on our celebration of 20 years of promoting health equity through policy-relevant research!


The Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit is a bi-university health research unit based at the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan. Since 1999, SPHERU has established itself as a leader in cutting edge population health research that not only looks at what and the why of health inequities -– but also how to address these and take action.
