Reproductive Health and impact of Budgets on Health Outcomes has been one of the dominant areas of CBPS research work. Public Expenditure Analysis has also been conducted to understand how various income groups access public health care facilities. Various publicly-funded insurance schemes have also been reviewed and suggestions made for integration of Government of India and state government insurance schemes. Two rounds of evaluation for enrolment under the Rashtriya Swastha Bima Yojana (RSBY) have been conducted in Karnataka. Public Expenditure Analysis in Karnataka for the period 2001- 02 to 2012-13 was undertaken, with a focus on health of children in different age-groups (0-5 years, 6- 14 years and 15-18 years). Some of the recent studies include public budget tracking for Tuberculosis and Congenital Heart Disease, Utilisation Pattern Analysis for Vajpayee Aarogyashri and Yeshaswini Insurance Schemes. Analysis of Health Budgets of three states namely Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Bihar, with a focus on Maternal and Child Health in National Health Mission, is also being conducted by CBPS.
