About Us

SIREN’s mission is to catalyze and disseminate high quality research that advances efforts to address social determinants of health (SDH) in health care settings.

SIREN projects are focused on:

  • Catalyzing high quality research to fill evidence gaps through an innovation grants program and support for researchers in this field;
  • Collecting, summarizing, and disseminating research resources and findings to researchers and other industry stakeholders via an interactive website and evidence library, reports, and meetings and presentations;
  • Increasing capacity to evaluate SDH interventions by providing evaluation, research, and analytics consultation services to safety-net and mission-aligned health systems.

The Network is supported by Kaiser Permanente and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and housed at the Center for Health and Community at the University of California, San Francisco.
